Felipe Massa - 'I will race again'
(GMM) Felipe Massa admits he is "lucky to be alive" but wants to return to the wheel of his formula one car.

In his first published interview since waking from a coma and recovering from serious head injuries, the 28-year-old Brazilian said he doesn't remember being struck on the helmet by a steel spring during Hungarian GP qualifying and crashing headlong into a barrier.

"I don't remember anything about the accident but I will race again," Massa is quoted as saying by Britain's News of the World newspaper.

"The accident was so unlucky but I know I'm lucky to be alive.

"When I woke up I didn't know why I was in hospital, so I was asking 'why am I here?'.

"I was pulling all the tubes and Eduardo, my brother, tried to stop me -- so we had a fight."

Massa will check out of the AEK hospital in central Budapest and return to his native Brazil on Monday. On Saturday he was visited by Michael Schumacher and Jean Todt.
