McLaren confirmed this morning that having been examined by FIA Medical Delegate Dr Gary Hartstein and the Chief Medical Officer of the event, Dr Klaus U. Zerbian, Lewis Hamilton has been cleared to race in the European Grand Prix.

It follows the British driver’s high-speed crash during Saturday’s qualifying session at the Nurburgring. Hamilton escaped uninjured, but was airlifted to hospital for a precautionary CT scan.

He will start from 10th place on the grid, with the same fuel load that he began qualifying with.
