2009 HUNGARY GP: MASSA CONDITION STABILE

A statement issued by Ferrari:
"After undergoing an operation yesterday afternoon, Felipe Massa's condition remains stable and there were no further complications through the night. He will be given another CT scan today, which will provide more precise information."

Doctors at the hospital are 'optimistic' about Massa's recovery, but cannot say anything for definite until the brain scans have been performed. Until those tests have been completed, it is also too early to judge how long Massa's recovery will take - or if he will be back in Formula 1 action this season.

Barrichello visited the AEK hospital in Budapest last night to find out news on his fellow Brazilian's condition, while Massa's father and other family members are flying out to Budapest to be with him, having not travelled to the race.
