Ericsson was sent to hospital on Saturday for routine examinations after he escaped uninjured from a heavy crash at the high-speed Stowe corner during final practice.
Despite not participating in qualifying, the Swede had already been granted stewards’ permission to race based on his practice lap times, subject to final clearance from the FIA medical delegate.
Damage to his car was serious enough that Sauber have requested that a fresh chassis be re-scrutineered for the race, meaning that Ericsson will start the 52-lap Grand Prix from the pit lane. The team have also replaced his gearbox.
