Kevin Magnussen is confident that he will be fit to race at next weekend's Italian GP despite injuring his ankle in a high-speed accident at Spa.

The Renault driver had a violent crash at the Belgian Grand Prix at he lost control through Eau Rouge.

He slammed into the Raidillon barriers backwards, destroying his RS16 and the tyre wall.

Magnussen climbed out of his car with a noticable limp and was taken to a local hospital for further checks.

Renault reported: "He has a small cut to the left ankle and has been escorted to a nearby hospital for further routine checks."

Despite his minor injury, the Dane is adamant that he will be back in action at the Italian GP.

He tweeted: "Thanks for all your messages folks! On my way home now with a sore ankle but will be ready for Monza."

Magnussen will have to undergo mandatory check up by the FIA medical delegate on Thursday at Monza.
