Felipe Massa hopes to be back racing in F1 in time for his Home GP this season.

The Brazilian was involved in a heavy crash at the Hungarian GP last month and is now on the road to recovery. But now all he wants too do is go racing, but also Massa has to prove he's fit and ready too get back in the car, as well as get the all clear from his doctor.

This is something i've been waiting for over the last few weeks to hear and the news looks good if he's targeting a comeback this season.

The sooner the better for both Massa and F1 speedy recovery and good mental health should see him in a fit condition. Mentally he is raring to go. He will probably upset a few top placers at the end of thr season an affect the outcome of the drivers championship.ok

Perhaps he'll at it with the attitude that he's had his near miss and he'll be safe for the rest of his racing career.

Is the psychological impact of looking in a mirror and looking drastically different as the result of an injury, assault or accident any greater than a widening girth with age, or wrinkles on the face?

Well, in the article Massa said it was down to the docs' opinions and up to him to prove he will be ready for a comeback, so I'd rate his chances as no better than 50/50.

He may be healed in time, but will his body be ready for the rigours of F1 racing by the end of ther season?

Plus I think its a bit daft coming back just for 2 races...especially if you then push yourself through recovery to try and make the deadline.

I hope that Massa can make it back for Brazil! What a reception he would get and that would probably do him a world of good! I had alot of respect for Massa after last years brazil gp and would love for him to make his return there as long as he is ok and fit to drive!! Even if he just races there and leaves Dubia out who could blame him??

Hope he has a speedy and good recovery!

And who knows, if he is back at the Brazilian Gp, he might actually heavily influence the outcome of the title?

You heard it here first.

And last.

probably.

the article says targeting.... its alwqays good to have a goal/target... gives u something to work towards.

surely the his medical people wouldnt give him the go ahead unless he is ready.

What a shame that Massa cant come back to the racing this season!but anyway Its a good news that hes in a good condition that is the most important thing right now! I really hope his return in next season is gonna be realised! Beacause I still feel a little worrid about his comeback in next season!

Massa should have died.

And no, of course I don't mean that. I'm just saying that before any trolls get a chance to (Ok, I don't believe they'd go THAT far, but they'd certainly mock his plight).

Massa should really wait until next season as he can't really win the championship this season, so why risk his health, he should take full advantage of the time to make a full recovery. Take care BlessedBe Felipe Massa!
