Saturday's Monaco crash

Saturday's Monaco crash

Ferrari have revealed that Felipe Massa is "alright" while the Brazilian has been released from hospital.

The Ferrari driver suffered two big accidents during the Monaco GP weekend starting with Saturday's final practice.

The Brazilian lost control of his F138 at the approach to St Devote, hitting the barriers with the left side.

From there he went nose first into the tyre wall and was later seen rubbing his shoulder.

Massa announced that he was "okay" but had sore muscles with some reports claiming he couldn't move his neck completely on Sunday morning.

The 11-time grand prix winner still took his place on the Monaco grid, P21, and was attempting to make up places when he suffered another off.

In a near repeat of Saturday's crash, Massa again hit the barriers at St Devote, this time though he appeared a bit more uncomfortable.

The F1 doctor saw to Massa on the side of the track, who was fitted with a neck brace.

"Massa is alright, currently undergoing some checkups," the team Tweeted.

The Brazilian has now been released, according to the latest reports, and is heading home.
