Massa doubts dream return

RECOVERING Brazilian Felipe Massa said his dream of racing for Ferrari in the season-ending F1 Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi next month was unlikely to come true.

"My hope is to come back soon, although I know the ideal thing is to return 100 percent at the start of next season," he told the Italian team's Website on Thursday.

"My dream would be to be at Abu Dhabi, but the chances of this happening are very, very small," he added referring to the November 15 race.

Massa is recovering from a life-threatening head injury he suffered in July when he was hit by bouncing debris in Hungarian Grand Prix qualifying.

He will test a 2007 model at Ferrari's Fiorano track on Monday, the team said in a statement yesterday.

The Brazilian returned to Italy and has been working in a Formula One simulator.

Massa will wave the checkered flag at next week's Brazilian Grand Prix, organizers said.
