Minardi reveal mechanics are not seriously injured

MINARDI have said that the two mechanics injured during pit-stops in the United States Grand Prix at Indianapolis are not seriously hurt as was first reported.

Front-right wheelman Riccardo Pozzarti and re-fueller Sandro Parrini were hit by the cars of Spaniard Marc Gene and Argentine Gaston Mazzacane when both skidded on the wet pit-lane surface during routine stops.

But the Italian team have said that both mechanics will be fit for the Japanese Grand Prix in two weeks time despite Pozzarti being knocked to the ground in one of the pit-stops.

Parrini injured his foot slightly but has continued work at Indianapolis today as the team prepare the cars for transportation back to Italy.
