Milan: A member of the Hispania Formula One team who was injured at the Italian Grand Prix eight days ago will leave hospital soon and return home to Germany, the team said.

The radio engineer was still working on Sakon Yamamoto`s car during a pitstop when the Japanese was released and drove off, flipping the man in the air and leaving him crumpled on the ground.

Hispania said in a preview for Sunday`s Singapore Grand Prix that he was on the mend.
"The Hispania Racing HRT F1 Team member who was involved in the incident at the pit-stop in Monza is recovering positively," they said.

"He is supposed to leave the hospital in Italy soon, where he was kept under observation and go back to Germany, his home country."
Hispania were fined USD 20,000 for the incident.
