Lotus Renault GP driver Vitaly Petrov has no injuries after his crash during the Monaco Grand Prix. The Russian stayed in his car after the low speed impact as he complained from pain in his left ankle, but the first check-ups show no broken bones or swelling.

A statement of the team said: "After his crash during the Monaco GP this afternoon, Vitaly complained about his left ankle to the medical crew, so doctors drove him to the Princess Grace hospital for further checks. No fracture had been diagnosed at the circuit.

Once at hospital, it was confirmed that there was no swelling or broken bone. As a precaution, Vitaly will undergo a full body scan but he should be back in the paddock within a few hours."

Petrov is the second driver this weekend to be recovered from his car at Monte Carlo after Sergio Pérez yesterday. Pérez has to stay in the hospital until Monday.
