Massa returns to Maranello

11:48 am on 6 October 2009

The Brazilian Formula One driver Felipe Massa has returned to Ferrari's headquarters at Maranello for the first time since fracturing his skull in a feak accident at the Hungarian Grand Prix in July.

He's in line to race again at the start of next season if not sooner, and will work on a simulator and improve his fitness with a decision not yet taken on when he will test a 2007 car as part of his comeback.

Massa says there's a lot to do but he's happy to be back in Italy with his second family.
