Ferrari confirms Räikkönen fit for Germany
6 July 2014 – Ferrari has confirmed that Kimi Räikkönen will be fit for the next round of the season in Germany, after medical checks in the wake of his heavy accident at the British Grand Prix cleared him of any serious injury.
The Finn, who had run wide at Aintree on the opening lap, jolted to the right when he attempted to re-join the circuit, sending him into the guardrail where he recorded an impact of 47G before sliding back across the track.
He limped away from the scene, which led to the race being red flagged for more than an hour, and was taken to the Silverstone circuit's Medical Centre for examinations, where anything more than bruising was ruled out.
Ferrari published a note explaining that Räikkönen "took a hard knock on the ankle and also has pain in a knee," before adding, "he will now have to rest but he will be back in time for the next round in Germany."
