Despite Ferrari saying the Brazilian will be out until next year, Felipe Massa on Tuesday said his "dream" target is the cockpit of his car number 3 at November's 2009 season finale.

Despite Ferrari saying the Brazilian will be out until next year, Felipe Massa on Tuesday said his "dream" target is the cockpit of his car number 3 at November's 2009 season finale.

In an interview published on Tuesday by Britain's Guardian newspaper, the 28-year-old said he will attend his home race in Sao Paulo in mid October as a spectator.

But in another interview, with Italy's Corriere della Sera also published on Tuesday, Massa revealed that he would like to then travel to Abu Dhabi to relieve his race stand-in Giancarlo Fisichella and conclude a seven-race period of recovery from head injuries.

"In 2010, it's 100 per cent sure I'm going to race but it would be a dream to return at Abu Dhabi on November 1," the newspaper quotes him as saying.
