Jan.9 - Felipe Massa had to break an agreement to race in Formula E this year, according to the Spanish sports daily Marca.
As a result of the late shakeup, Marca claims Massa actually broke a "preliminary contract" he had agreed with a Formula E team for 2017.
"The deal was done," correspondent Jaime Martin said. "However, with Rosberg's decision, everything changed."
The report said Massa's contract with the unnamed Formula E team was broken "amicably".
