Felipe Massa has denied suggestions that he is continuing to have trouble with his eyesight after his serious accident of 2009. After the 28-year-old Brazilian suffered head injuries when his helmet was struck by a flying spring in Hungary last July, there were serious doubts about his vision. Although his 20-20 vision was reported to have returned, he has been spotted wearing glasses recently. On Friday, Massa addressed the issue on Ferrari's official website, and Massa denied that he now also needs the glasses at the wheel of his F1 car.
"I just have a little bit of myopia (short-sightedness), so I just wear them when I'm driving in the evening and when I'm watching a movie," Massa said, "Usually for racing, also at night, it's OK."
