Ferrari’s Felipe Massa will continue his comeback to Formula One by testing a 2007-spec car at Fiorano in the near future.
A date has yet to be set for the test, but Massa is believed to be making good progress after suffering a severe head injury in qualifying for the Hungarian grand prix in August.
"I don't know yet [when the test will be]," said Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali. "We will decide this week because Felipe will come to Maranello on Monday.”
“He will stay with the team this week, he will go and do some training in the simulator, physical training in Maranello, and then we will decide when to do this. Also, because it is compulsory, he has to do an FIA medical check before doing something. This is something we will decide this week.
"What I can say is that it is not planned to do any driving in Brazil. For Abu Dhabi it is very, very unlikely. The main target is Bahrain next year."
Michael Schumacher took part in a similar test earlier this year before his comeback was aborted due to a neck injury.
