Vitaly Petrov has escaped injury following his crash at the end of the Monaco Grand Prix.
The Russian driver made contact with the barriers after crashing into the back of Jaime Alguersuari's Toro Rosso with six laps to go.
Although the impact was at relative slow speed, the Russian stayed in the car and reported pain in his left ankle.
He was taken to hospital for checks, and Renault said there was no swelling or broken bones.
The team said as a precaution, Petrov will undergo a full body scan but "he should be back in the paddock within a few hours".
