The injured Formula One driver Felipe Massa is up and about and expected to make a full recovery from his horrific accident at the Hungarian Grand Prix, but he'll remain in hospital in Budapest for a while yet.

His personal doctor Dino Altmann says he's eating well, walking about and taking showers, and he'll eventually be flown straight home to Brazil to complete his recovery from a fractured skull.
