Massa opens up over Schumacher visit

Felipe Massa has spoken about a visit he made to Michael Schumacher in hospital in Grenoble.

Schumacher remains in a coma following his skiing accident in late December, with doctors reducing his sedation in an attempt to wake him. Massa revealed that he had visited Schumacher ahead of the second test in Bahrain and that he is hopeful that his former Ferrari team-mate will make a good recovery.

“I always try to be optimistic,” Massa said. “I saw him, I talked to him, I was telling him everything I did in Jerez – about my car, the new team and everything – I was telling him to wake up many times… I’m positive. I think we need to believe. He’s a very strong man, a very great man and I really hope he can wake up and I really hope he can enjoy his life again.
