Massa, Perez given the all-clear

Felipe Massa and Sergio Perez have been released from hospital following their high-impact accident in Sunday's Canadian GP.

Battling for position, Massa drove into the back of Perez's Force India, putting both cars into the barriers and out of the race.

The duo both suffered heavy impacts, however, the good news is that they are okay.

Massa and Perez were both taken to a local hospital and have already been released.

Williams head of vehicle performance Rob Smedley has revealed that Massa's impact with the barriers was a staggering 27Gs.

"There was 27G in the car so it was a high impact," he told the BBC.

Smedley added: "He is fairly miffed at the moment."
