Massa was woken from his medically-induced coma early in the week and has spent the last few days being visited by friends, family and colleagues, amongst them Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo and Massa’s F1 stand-in and mentor Michael Schumacher. Massa himself is due to hold a video press- conference today, but Schumacher told the press he had been glad to have spoken to the Brazilian face to face. “It was good to finally see Felipe, I feel better now,” said Schumacher. “Although I’ve been constantly in contact with him through Nicolas and Jean [Todt] and I always knew everything, it’s always better to see things with your own eyes. “I’m surprised by how good his condition is, considering that the accident happened last week. We’ve been together and spoke a bit about everything. I feel really relieved now.”
