Vergne still feeling effects of Monza crash
14 September, 2012
The French rookie’s car veered out of control at the end of the Autodromo’s long pit straight during the Italian Grand Prix.
Vergne’s car launched over a kerb and landed with a thud, and he immediately complained on the radio about a sore back.
He was taken to the medical centre with pain in his back and head, but declared: “I am fine.”
And now in a post-race blog, the 22-year-old has revealed that he also sustained “a few bruises” and a sore neck.
“I do feel pretty stiff across my back and neck but I think that will go away over the next day or so and I’ll get on with what is going to be a pretty busy schedule until Singapore,” said Vergne.
Toro Rosso said that the crash was caused by a suspension failure.
