Felipe Massa has received medical clearance to test a 2007 Formula 1 car on Monday after successfully passing a second day of tests in Paris.
Yesterday he learned that his left eye had fully recovered from the damage sustained in the Hungaroring accident, and today he completed the final tests under FIA supervision to confirm that he was fit enough to return to the track.
"In the afternoon the medical exams Felipe Massa underwent at the Pitie Salpetriere hospital in Paris were concluded," said a Ferrari statement. "The medical team, coordinated by Professor Jean-Charles Piette, FIA's medical delegate, finished a series of neurological exams started yesterday, whose outcome was positive."
The team added that the way was now clear for Massa to drive again on Monday.
"Felipe will return to Maranello tomorrow where, on Monday, he will take a further step in his recovery programme in the best possible way, taking the wheel of a private F2007 single-seater in a test under the personal assistance of the F1 Clienti department," it said.
Massa has already been active in Ferrari's simulator, completing two days of running earlier this week. He had played down his chances of racing this season and expects to wait until 2010 before competing again.
