Williams Felipe Massa will have the opportunity to sample a car he would have perhaps raced in 2017, had he decided not to return to Formula 1.

Massa was rumored to have signed an agreement to race in Formula E team in 2017, but Nico Rosberg's retirement , and Valtteri Bottas' subsequent move from Williams to Mercedes, set in motion a revolving door which brought the Brazilian back to where he started.

Massa will still get the chance to test a machine form the full-electric series, and while the test is provided by Jaguar, its location is still unknown.

"Panasonic Jaguar Racing received a request from Formula E to give Felipe Massa the chance to experience a Formula E car," the team said in statement released yesterday.

"We are happy to provide this opportunity."

With preparations for the 2017 Formula 1 season in full swing, it's not knows why Massa has accepted the test beyond a simple case of satisfying one's curiosity.
