The sunglasses worn by Ferrari F1 driver Felipe Massa are these I-I MOD 080 sunglasses by Italia Independent in colour Havana 092.

On their website, Italia Independent describe these sunglasses "...the essence of Italia Independent’s savoir faire: tradition, modernity, craftsmanship and innovation, skillfully combined to create a one-of-a-kind product".

The 080 sunglasses are a new take on of the famous shapes of the past - namely the Wayfarer design made famous by Ray-Ban.

This model features brushed steel temples with acetate front and ear-tips.  The 080 is also available in a selection of different colours - most notably the special Neon colour options with multi-coated mirrored lenses made by Dalloz Sunoptic.
