Jean-Éric Vergne has admitted that he is still feeling the effects of his dramatic race-ending accident at Monza last weekend. The Frenchman's Toro Rosso suffered a rear suspension failure under braking for the first corner, resulting in an instant loss of control before his car was launched violently over the surrounding kerbs.
"After the race, we established it had been a failure with the rear suspension," Vergne confirmed. "In the end you just have to put it down as one of those things that happen when you go racing.
"I do feel pretty stiff across my back and neck but I think that will go away over the next day or so and I’ll get on with what is going to be a pretty busy schedule until Singapore."
Vergne went on to describe the incident in more detail, explaining that the situation could have been much worse if his car had flipped over.
"The kerbs are quite high at Monza, so when the car hit the kerb I was thrown in the air," he added. "I was a little worried that the car might flip, so the fact that it didn’t is something to be grateful for. It could have been a lot worse than it was."
