Massa leaves hospital, flies to Brazil

Brazilian driver Felipe Massa has left the AEK hospital in Budapest and is already on his way home to Brazil.

After nine days in hospital following his accident at the Hungarian Grand Prix, the Ferrari driver was taken by ambulance to the Budapest airport, where he boarded a private jet back to Brazil.

He was joined by his pregnant wife Raffaela and his personal doctor Dino Altmann.

Massa, who will be replaced by Michael Schumacher at the European Grand Prix, will give his first interview since the accident later today.
