Sauber says Sergio Perez has been released from the Princesse Grace hospital in Monaco where he was being treated for a concussion and a sprained thigh, which he suffered in a crash in Monte Carlo.

The Mexican driver, who had an accident during qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix sidelining him for Sunday's race, had undergone more examinations during his stay in the hospital.

"I have little bit of pain in my leg and in my neck, but this comes from muscles and is nothing to worry about," Perez said. "On Sunday I still felt a bit dizzy but that is all."

He added that he does not recall the entire episode that happened on Saturday adding that the cause of the accident is yet to be identified.

"For the time being I am missing some memories about what happened after the first impact and the rescue procedures," he said. "I don’t really know what caused the accident. My race engineer told me there was no problem with the car. I can only guess that I might have been a bit offline or braked on a bump."

Perez says he is "pretty sure" he will be driving in the Canadian Grand Prix at Montreal on June 12.
