According to the spokesman, Massa has been woken up from sedation and he’s able to communicate actively and he also moves his hands and his legs.

Massa’s wife Raffaela, who is pregnant with the couple’s first child, and his parents spent the night at the AEK Hospital in Budapest. Ferrari President Luca Cordero di Montezemolo is also expected to fly to Budapest this morning to visit the injured Brazilian.
