Felipe Massa's first interview since his accident in qualifying for last weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix will be released by Ferrari on Monday, after quotes that appeared in the press today were confirmed not to be from Massa himself.
Contrary to reports published in the press earlier today, Ferrari says Massa has not spoken to the media in any capacity since his crash and that his words will be released tomorrow as he leaves hospital to fly home to Brazil.
A statement published on Ferrari's website today confirmed that quotes published today were from his brother Edoardo, and not Felipe himself.
Massa was visited in hospital yesterday by his friend and former teammate Michael Schumacher, who is making a surprise Formula 1 comeback to deputise for him at Ferrari while he recovers.
Schumacher said he had been pleasantly surprised by how quickly Massa's condition had improved.
"It was good to finally see Felipe, I feel better now," said Schumacher. "Although I've been constantly in contact with him through Nicolas and Jean [Todt] and I always knew everything, it's always better to see things with your own eyes.
"I'm surprised by how good his condition is, considering that the accident happened last week. We've been together and spoke a bit about everything. I feel really relieved now."
