Magnussen cleared to race in Italian GP after crash in Spa
MONZA, Italy (AP) Kevin Magnussen has been cleared to compete at this weekend's Italian Grand Prix after medical checks to his left ankle following a crash at last weekend's Belgian GP.
The Renault team Tweeted a photo Thursday of Magnussen giving an OK signal with his thumb and forefinger and wrote ''All clear to race,'' indicating he had passed a mandatory FIA medical exam.
Renault had said Tuesday that the 23-year-old Danish driver had ''no fracture or serious injury'' after spinning at speed and slamming backward into the barriers in Spa. He was noticeably hobbling and went to a local hospital for checks after Sunday's race.
Magnussen is 16th in the drivers' standings, with his six points coming from a seventh-place finish in Russia in May.
