Felipe Massa's scheduled return to Formula One at the 2010 season opener appears on track.

The Brazilian has this week confirmed he will make his competitive return to racing at the famous Granja Viana endurance kart race in Sao Paulo in early December.

It has also been suggested he will travel to Abu Dhabi this weekend to observe Ferrari contest the 2009 season finale.

Although Massa, 28, has recently tested a F1 car and karts, the 500-mile Granja Viana will mark his first wheel-to-wheel combat since recovering from serious head injuries earlier this year.

The Ferrari driver said in September that he would only be racing in December "if the doctors give me permission".

He has also said he wants to contest the Challenge of the Stars go-kart race in late November.
