Massa to return for test drive

October 09, 2009 16:50 IST

Felipe Massa will return to a Formula One car for the first time since his serious accident when he tests a 2007 model at Ferrari's Fiorano track on Monday, his team said in a statement on Friday.

The Brazilian, who fractured his skull at July's Hungarian Grand Prix, returned to Italy on Monday and has been working in a Formula One simulator for much of the week.

He will wave the chequered flag at his home grand prix in Brazil next week but has said it was unlikely he would be fit to compete at the season-ending race in Abu Dhabi next month.
