Massa ready to test drive again: Ferrari

The Brazilian, who fractured his skull at the Hungarian Grand Prix, returned to Ferrari's Maranello factory on Monday and has been working in a Formula One simulator for much of the week.

He flew to Paris on Friday for neurological and ophthalmological tests conducted by the governing International Automobile Federation (FIA) at the Pitie Salpetriere hospital that will continue on Saturday.

"The first outcomes are positive: especially the ophthalmological exam confirmed that Felipe, who arrived with his personal doctor Dino Altmann, has recovered the functions of his left eye by 100 percent," Ferrari said on their website (

Massa will fly to Brazil after his test in a 2007 Ferrari at Fiorano and will wave the chequered flag at his home grand prix at Interlagos on October 18.
Massa injured his head at the Hungarian Grand Prix after a spring rammed into his head. He has recovered sufficiently but will not race again this season.
