Massa back behind wheels for first time

BRAZILIAN Felipe Massa climbed into a racing car for the first time since sustaining a life-threatening head injury at the Hungarian Grand Prix when he drove seven laps in a kart on Monday.

A source close to the Ferrari driver said yesterday that Massa drove the kart at a circuit outside Sao Paulo where he was accompanied by friends and his doctor, Dino Altmann. Massa was told to avoid driving for more than an hour to avoid back pain but light rain that became steadily worse prevented him from doing more than seven laps. The 28-year-old apparently did not feel any pain or discomfort. Massa, last year's drivers' championship runner-up, will not return to Formula One until next season.
