Massa may be back in F1 car next week

RECOVERING Brazilian Felipe Massa could be back behind the wheel of a Formula One car in Italy next week despite a ban on testing during the season, Ferrari said.

"It is possible Felipe will drive a Formula One car in the coming days, but it's not been decided exactly when," a spokesman said yesterday. Massa is recovering from a life-threatening head injury that he suffered in July when he was hit by bouncing debris in Hungarian Grand Prix qualifying. Race stewards at Suzuka, Japan, on Sunday agreed Massa would be allowed to drive Ferrari's 2007 F1 car, fitted with tires from the GP2 support series, in a private test to be conducted by his medical representatives.
