Formula 1 driver Felipe Massa caught up with tennis star Rafael Nadal on the clay courts of the Monte Carlo Masters in Monaco Sunday.


The Williams driver posted a photograph of himself on Twitter along with his wife Raffaela Bassi and son Felipinho posing with the World No.1 tennis player.

"Happy to be with @RafaelNadal today in Monaco! Great guy! Number 1 as a person! Good luck Rafa!!" tweeted Massa, who will be racing in the Chinese Grand Prix next weekend.

The Monte Carlo Masters is the first clay court 1000 point ATP tournament of the year where the top seed has got a first round bye.

The Spaniard won the title eight consecutive times between 2005 and 2012, making him the only player in the Open Era to win eight consecutive titles at the same tournament. His streak was stopped by Serbian Novak Djokovic in the final last year.
