Vitaly Petrov has aid he does not face any issues in returning to race at the Canadian Grand Prix.

Petrov needed medical assistance after crashing his Renault in last weekend's Monaco Grand Prix, and he was taken to hospital complaining of back and leg pains. Scans showed he had not suffered any significant injury.

"Physically I'm feeling fine with no problems," he said. "I'm feeling better than I was after the race in Monaco. My ankle is fine and I don't see any problems for the race here in Canada."

Petrov added that after two blank races, he needed to get back in the points. "We must get to the finish line and score some good points because we know we can do it. We are well aware that our car is very quick so we need to minimise our mistakes and the results will come."
