Felipe Massa is already thinking about racing again, and would be happy to get back into his Ferrari in the next race in Valencia, according to his personal doctor.
Reacting to the news that seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher would take his seat in the Ferrari while he was not able to drive again, Massa reportedly joked: "We have to see if I will let him drive!"
I can't help but think "PR fail" if its Massa getting into the Ferrari at Valencia and not Schumacher now that they've declared that Schumacher is driving. Would Ferrari keep him rested for say Valencia and Spa and let Michael drive. I can see why they may want to rest Massa for Spa as its one of the most demanding tracks on the calendar... but if Massa is 100%, that's a bit of a conundrum for Ferrari.
I think they should have waited until next week before announcing anything myself - seeing as Massa appears to be improving in leaps and bounds.
