Felipe Massa is all set to make his return to the wheel of a Formula One car.

The Brazilian, who has not driven Grand Prix machinery since sustaining serious head injuries during qualifying in Hungary in July, is scheduled to occupy a two-year-old F2007 at Ferrari's Fiorano test track on Monday.

FIA medical checks in Paris on Friday showed his eyesight is back to 100 per cent, and neurological exams on Saturday had a "rather positive" outcome, Massa's Ferrari team said.

The Italian squad confirmed that the 28-year-old will drive the 2007, run by Ferrari's F1 Clienti customer department, on Monday.
