Schu and Barrichello Happy With Massa Progress
Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello have both declared that they are happy with the progress that Felipe Massa is making in his recovery from that horrific accident in qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix.
Schumacher spoke of Massa’s slow, but successful recovery in a press conference, haistly called in Geneva yesterday after Schumacher, 40, decided not to return to Formula One afterall. He had been conscripted back into Ferrari after Massa’s crash, but has been unable to get fit in time.
“At the time I gave him [Massa] my cockpit I was tired and I wanted him to take over. The good thing is to see that his recovery is going well, he’s very motivated – he’s working not very hard because he’s not allowed to – but it’s good to see his progress and I’m very happy about that.” Schumacher said
Rubens Barrichello of Brawn GP too has spoken of how Massa is recovering after seeing the Brazilian at home. On his official Twitter feed, Barrichello wrote two posts;
“I spend the afternoon with Felipe…he is fine and exactly the same person as before..thank God.”
“On Felipe’s come back we need to be patient…he has to be 100% before driving again,”
