HINWIL, Switzerland (AP) — The Sauber Formula One team says Mexican driver Sergio Perez has been released from the hospital in Monaco.

Perez crashed during qualifying Saturday for the Monaco Grand Prix and suffered a concussion and a sprained thigh.

In a statement issued by Sauber on Monday, the 21-year-old says he still has a "little bit of pain in my leg and in my neck, but this comes from muscles and is nothing to worry about."

Perez says he is "pretty sure" he will be driving at the next Grand Prix on June 12 in Montreal.

Defending champion Sebastian Vettel won Sunday's race for Red Bull.
