Just an update on our Nico.Â He apparently is fine and ready for Canada.Â You had a feeling in Monaco that the young man was either going to have a big shunt or be a complete hero.Â Either way, he was pushing to the limit and wringing the neck of the Williams-Toyota.Â A very impressive drive for a very impressive young man.
“First of all, let me say that I’m fine!” he told the team’s official website. “My crash at the Swimming Pool chicane 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 days rest, I am currently preparing and training as normal for the Canadian Grand Prix.”
“The cause of the accident was straightforward.
“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.
“After that I was a passenger and hit the barrier on the right before being thrown across the track into the barrier on the left.”
