Ferrari driver Felipe Massa planned on returning to action in October's Brazilian Grand Prix following his life-threatening injuries in Fomula One's Hungary stop.
The Brazilian told local media Globo TV late Sunday that he plans to be back in action for the October 18 race if his weekly test results are good.
Massa said his left eye had not yet fully healed.
The 28-year-old crashed into the tyre wall and sustained multiple skull fractures at the Hungarian Grand Prix on July 25 that left him hospitalized for nine days.
He is resting in Brazil after released from hospital and undergoes weekly tests to monitor the progress of his injuries.
Before the crash, Massa was seventh in the drivers' standings with 22 points. His best result had been a third-place finish at the German GP on July 12.
