Magnussen to use spare chassis at Monza

Still to be cleared fit to race, if approved Kevin Magnussen will use his spare chassis for the Italian GP weekend.

Though his approval to take part in this weekend's Italian Grand Prix appears to be a formality, the Dane came out of last weekend's high-speed crash at Spa in much better shape than his car.

Though Magnussen suffered only a heavily bruised left ankle, his car is a write-off.

"The accident was clearly sizeable and the damage sustained is too great to use the car for Italy," confirmed technical director, Nick Chester.

"The current spare will become Kevin's car in Monza and we will take another chassis out as a spare," he added.

"It was a big crash and I was sore but fortunately had nothing worse than a bruised ankle," says Magnussen. "I've had some more checks in Denmark and am working with my physio to keep fit.

"I feel I'm ready to race in Monza," he adds, "but the FIA will of course have the final word. But I really want to and I'm confident that by then it will be fine."
