Ferrari's Francesco Cigarini is on the mend!

Formula 1 isn't without its perils, obviously, even for team members who work tirelessly to ensure their driver achieves the best possible result.

As everyone is challenged and pushed to the limit, sometimes the boundaries are crossed and a painful mishap occurs.

Ferrari will no doubt conduct its due diligence on the events which unfolded during Kimi Raikkonen's second pitstop in yesterday's race.

But fortunately for brave Francesco Cigarini, the mechanic who found himself in the line of fire yesterday, a broken leg is nothing a bit of rest and a daily dose of Lambrusco can't cure!

Francesco gave everyone an update on his status on Instagram:

"Surgery ok. I have to thank all the people worried for me. Nothing else, just a big thanks. Hugs!"

Forza Francesco!
