Felipe Massa has had a lot of news about himself in the past couple of weeks. First, he had his horrific accident in Hungary, there was the report that he may or may not race again, and the report that Michael Schumacher was taking over for him as he was getting out of the Hungarian military hospital.
Now the Associated Press is reporting that Felipe Massa was officially released from Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Tuesday, August 4 and sent home to be with his family and start his full recovery process. That means that he was in there one day once he was released from Hungary, he spent one night in the hospital in Brazil. This is an incredible recovery for a man that had emergency surgery on his head to relieve pressure in his brain from a skull fracture and a fracture on his forehead.
“There is no need for more surgeries. What he needs now is rest.” Massa’s family doctor, Dino Altmann, said. He also went on to say, “We can’t say when he will be able to race again. It’s too early to talk about that. It’s going to depend on the reevaluations. We have to make sure there is no risk. I’m sure he will follow our recommendations so he can return as soon as possible.”
Felipe Massa will undergo numerous tests and evaluations on his health and head condition in the coming months. We just wish him a continued and speedy recovery.
