Rosberg recovers from Monaco crash

2008-05-29 14:46
 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 website.

"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," Rosberg said.

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.
