Ferrari test driver Luca Badoer was involved in an accident on Sunday in testing at the Barcelona circuit. He spent Sunday night in hospital and was discharged on Monday.

Unfortunately for him, he'll have to refrain from testing for a two week period and will have to wear a neck brace to support his injuries.

A statement by the team read: "Luca Badoer was released from the Catalunya General Hospital this morning. He was admitted to hospital in Montebelluna, where he underwent further tests which confirmed there were no complications with his condition. He has been fitted with a neck support because of the whiplash effect of the accident. He has been told to rest for two weeks and was able to return home."

Michael Schumacher will return to testing at the Barcelona circuit on Tuesday.
