Nico Rosberg has declared himself
"fine" following his hospital visit at Monaco last Sunday.
The Williams driver, who lives in the
Mediterranean principality, had precautionary checks after a big crash in the
swimming pool complex towards the end of the race on the famous Monte Carlo circuit.
"First of all, let me say that I'm
fine!" the 22-year-old German wrote in a column on the British team's
"My crash was a big one, but there's
no damage - not to me, anyway.
"After consulting the doctors on site
I decided, as precaution, to go to the Princess Grace
Hospital in Monaco.
"All the routine checks in the
hospital showed that everything was perfectly fine, so I was released to go
home rather quickly.
"After a couple of days' rest, I am
currently preparing and training as normal for the Canadian Grand Prix,"
He explained that the crash was caused by
him simply sliding off the track.
"I was pushing really hard on dry
tyres and coming into the swimming pool corner after Tabac when the rear of the
car flicked out suddenly on entry, most probably on a patch of water under
braking," he said.
