Massa had medical checks in Brazil after Monaco

Felipe Massa and Pastor Maldonado are both ok and ready for weekend

Jun.7 (GMM) Felipe Massa and Pastor Maldonado on Thursday announced they are fighting fit for this weekend's F1 action in Canada.

The pair were both nursing sore bodies after Monaco, where Brazilian Massa crashed twice at high speed at Ste-Devote, and Williams' Maldonado complained of "pain" in the days after his crash that dislodged the barrier at Tabac corner.

Massa told Brazil's Totalrace on Thursday: "I did all the (hospital) tests there in Monaco, and I also did some tests in Sao Paulo afterwards but there was nothing (wrong).

"I'm 100 per cent ready for this race," he said in Canada. "After three or four days the muscle pain - which was completely normal after two crashes in the same direction - was already gone."

And Maldonado commented: "I'm ok, perfect -- prepared for this weekend.

"Hopefully the car will be better here and we can finish in the points."
