Massa's eye fully recovered

Post by maxdamage » Tue Oct 13, 2009 12:24 am

Tests conducted in Italy have confirmed that Felipe Massa's left eye has fully healed after his horror crash in Hungary.

The Brazilian suffered sever damage to his face and eye after a stray spring from compatriot Rubens Barrichello's car hit him just above his left eye.
It was initially feared that Massa's vision would be permanently damaged, but medical tests have calmed such concerns.
"Felipe Massa started a series of neurological and ophthalmological exams by the FIA at the Pitié Salpetrière hospital in Paris, part of the Brazilian driver's recovery programme after the accident in Budapest on 25 July," Ferrari said in a statement.
"The first outcomes are positive: especially the ophthalmological exam confirmed that Felipe, who arrived with his personal doctor Dino Altmann, has recovered the functions of his left eye by 100 per cent."
Earlier in the week Massa indicated he was focusing on return to F1 action next season, having at one staged hoped to return in the season-ending grand prix in Abu Dhabi.
