...because I don't remember anything at all about the accident" Felipe Massa said during a very lengthy interview with Galvão Bueno of Brazil's GloboTV. "... I never saw the spring, my last memory is the lap before the accident, next thing I remember is waking up in the hospital."
Massa is looking much better than when he was released from the hospital in Hungary but is still very much recuperating from his injuries which after the accident left him with only 65% vision in his left eye. Rest and relaxation, he tells, have helped him regain up to 80-85% capacity in that injured eye and he is right now hoping to return not for the Italian GP as many have speculated but for his home Brazilian GP, the penultimate of the season, in October.
Asked if he believes he was lucky and unlucky, Massa answers both. Unlucky because of his meeting with that spring, lucky because it could have been so much worse. He goes on to say that he was helped tremendously by all the good will and messages support even from those drivers he fights with on the track.
A very charming, well done interview, worth watching even if you have just a rudimentary understanding of Portuguese as I do.
