Renault says Magnussen will be fit for Monza

Renault says that Kevin Magnussen will be fit to race in Monza this weekend following further medical checks since his big crash in the Belgian GP.

However the final call will be made by the FIA in Italy on Thursday.

A statement from the team said: “After initial checks at the circuit’s medical centre, Kevin was referred to a local hospital in Verviers for further routine examinations.

“Kevin had heavily bruised his left ankle but the tests showed no fracture or serious injury and he was released from hospital the same day and returned home to Denmark. He has since undergone further checks in Denmark that indicate he is able to race at the Italian Grand Prix in six days. The FIA will confirm Kevin is fit to compete following a final assessment on Thursday in Monza.”

“I’m feeling much better, which is very good news,” said the Dane. “I’ve had several checks that show I am fit to race in Monza and I am sure I will be in the car this weekend. We were running in the top ten in Belgium and I’m very motivated to repeat this again in Italy.”
