Tony Kanaan is expected to be good to go for next weekend's Sao Paulo IndyCar race, despite injuring his hand in a Long Beach crash.
The Brazilian hurt his right hand when he hit the barriers while fighting Oriol Servia for fifth in the closing laps of the race. After undergoing an initial assessment at the circuit's medical center, he was referred to specialists for x-rays on Monday.
These revealed torn ligaments and bruising. However no bones were broken, with Kanaan describing the damage on Twitter as "a full-on injury but it will heal on its own."
A KV Racing team spokesperson that while the progress of healing will be tracked over the coming days, Kanaan is expected to recover in time to race in Brazil.
"We're monitoring the situation, but he should be fine," she said.
