    Cool Doctor and team encouraged by Massa recovery



    Ferrari on Tuesday reported more good news regarding Felipe Massa's rate of recovery. The Brazilian remains at Budapest's AEK hospital, where he was taken for emergency surgery following head wounds inflicted by a flying damper spring during last Saturday's Hungarian GP qualifying session.

    "His condition is improving quickly and constantly. He is more and more awake and reactive," declared Massa's personal doctor Dino Altman.

    "He spoke to several people today, using three different languages, replying always in a coherent way," he elaborated. "He's also progressing with his physiotherapy very well. He opened his left eye and confirmed that he can see with it.

    "As far as the near future is concerned we have to be cautious, but I have to say that also today there are very positive signs," Altman added.

    Ferrari Team Principal Stefano Domenicali returned to Budapest again, and emerged from his visit feeling relieved.

    "It's good to have comforting news," the Italian said.

    "I spoke to Felipe and it was very emotional for me: he recognised me and I brought him a message from everybody at Ferrari and from the fans all over the world. I told him that his red car will wait for him until he's ready to race again.

    "Now we've got to take it step by step and remain cautious, but it's really incredible to see all of this progress only three days after the accident," Domenicali reported.

    That is terrific news.After watching the video of the spring flying up and striking his helmet,I'd say he is extremely lucky.Here's to a full recovery and return to the races.

    Best wishes to Felipe. I knew nothing about the incident until I watched my DVR'd recording of qualifying on Sunday. Holy crap!
