Kovalainen released

Heikki Kovalainen has a stiff neck and a slight headache, Reuters reports, as the Finn was cleared to leave the hospital following his horrific shunt in yesterday’s Spanish Grand Prix.

Kovalainen said his focus was getting better as soon as possible so that he could pass the required FIA medical inspection which will allow him to race in Istanbul in two weeks time.

The McLaren driver said he could not remember anything about the accident, caused by what the team described as a wheel rim failure.

Kovalainen will remain in Spain for the next few days for relaxation and light training.

FIA faces breakaway threat

According to the Sunday Times, a group of motoring bodies, led by the American Automobile Association (AAA), are threatening to split from the FIA if Max Mosley survives his vote of confidence June 3.

AAA repeated its call for the embattled FIA head to step down as the best course of action to preserve the integrity of the organization.

Mosley has insisted he still has significant support within the FIA.

Several sources reported Bernie Ecclestone met with representatives of ten of the F1 teams last weekend in Barcelona concerning Mosley. Ecclestone was supposed to have offered to withdraw support for Mosley if the teams agreed unanimously to sign a letter calling for his resignation, but Ferrari, Williams and Toro Rosso wouldn’t sign.

Ecclestone has dismissed those claims. Don't miss the top stories of the day, subscribe to the SpeedRead Web newspaper now! -- Email SpeedRead -- Learn more about author C.D. Six
