At the Belgian Grand Prix held at Spa-Francorchamps Sunday 28 August, the Renault Sport Formula One Team Kevin Magnussen driver left the track at high speed. After a preliminary examination at the circuit medical center, Kevin was transferred to Verviers hospital for routine checks.
He was released from the hospital the same day to return home. In Denmark, he underwent further tests indicating that it will be able to compete in the Italian Grand Prix in six days.
Thursday at Monza, the FIA will conduct a final carry to confirm if Kevin is able to run.
“I feel much better, which is very good news,” commented Kevin. “I spent several checks showing that I can ride at Monza and I am confident that the FIA will see it this week. We were in the top ten in Belgium and I am extremely motivated to start this weekend. “
