SAO PAULO -- Formula One driver Felipe Massa says he's nearly recovered from a fractured skull and hopes to return to racing at the Brazilian Grand Prix in October.

The Brazilian said in an interview with Globo TV late Sunday that he is aiming to back for the Oct. 18 race, but it will depend on the results of his weekly tests.

Massa says his left eye "is not 100 percent yet" after his life-threatening crash with Ferrari at the Hungarian Grand Prix on July 25 left him hospitalized for nine days with multiple skull fractures.

He says he still doesn't remember anything about the crash.
