Cristiano da Matta has said that he has almost completely recovered from his injuries sustained at Elkhart Lake in August, but he will not think about his future yet.
The Brazilian suffered serious injuries in testing at the track when his car collided with a deer, but he believes he is "ninety-nine per cent" recovered.
"I'm almost completely recovered, living a normal life and focusing on my health," da Matta said on his personal website.
"I can already move my arm in whatever way I want, and now I just need to work a little bit on my strength."
However, da Matta is not yet contemplating his return to racing.
He was quoted by the Associated Press as saying: "I made a promise not to think about racing again before I'm 100-percent recovered.
"I'm not being able to completely keep this promise, of course, but I try to stay away from the subject."
