Massa communicating 'passively', positive signs

FELIPE Massa's health is improving after the Formula One driver made "passive communication" with doctors, and medical scans provided "positive signs."

Department of defense ministry spokesman Istvan Bocskai said today that Massa was not speaking but that the 28-year-old Brazilian reacted when spoken to.

Massa was in a "life-threatening" but stable condition following surgery on multiple skull injuries sustained during a violent crash in his Ferrari Saturday at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Bocskai said that military hospital doctors were "reassured" after no complications were uncovered by a CT scan.

The sedated Massa is also being woken up more frequently.

"These are definitely positive signs," Bocskai.
