Renault driver Vitaly Petrov hopeful of racing in the Canadian Grand Prix – Formula 1 news
Renault driver Vitaly Petrov is hopeful of driving a Formula 1 car in the upcoming Canadian Grand Prix of the 2011 season.
The Russian crashed in the Monaco Grand Prix and was recovered via medical crew. Initially it was thought that he would have suffered major injuries but now as he is recovered, he tells the real story.
“I couldn’t get out of the car at first as my legs were blocked and I also couldn’t feel them. So I thought I have a problem, maybe my legs are broken or something. So I just sat in the car and waited for the people to help me get out of the car,” explains
The Monaco Grand Prix is always said to be tough on the Rookies, which it proved to be once again in the 2011 term. Firstly in the qualifiers, Sauber’s Rookie Sergio Perez crashed exiting the famous tunnel. Then in the race, Renault’s Petrov and in the final
stages of the race Williams’ Pastor Maldonado tasted the barriers in their first outing of the Monaco track.
Petrov was behind McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton when the crashed happened and Petrov smashed hard in the guardrails. Toro Rosso’s Jaime Alguersuari was also caught up in the act but recovered as his car was not severely damaged.
Petrov was taken to the hospital and soon the news came out that he was doing well. Luckily for him, the next race is two weeks away which means he will get plenty of time to recover.
Talking about his present condition and the Canadian Grand Prix, Petrov said, “I’m fine. I’ll rest for two to three days and then we will see what’s going on. I’m looking forward to Canada. We need points and I hope we will finish near the front.”
The season continues in Canada in about ten days from now and Petrov is hoping to be ok by then. Renault are currently fourth on the constructors’ table with 50 points. It will be interesting to see what Petrov can pull out of the Canadian Grand Prix if
he recovers.
