BMW Sauber's Robert Kubica has been given the all-clear to compete this weekend at the French Grand Prix following his monster crash in Canada three weeks ago.

The Pole, who was forced to skip the event at Indianapolis in the United States as a result of his 180 mph off, noted that he is ready to get back behind the cock-pit.

Indeed despite his big accident, he only suffered a mild concussion and sprained angle.

"I'm 100 per cent fit," the 22-year-old driver told BBC Sport Online. "I'm looking forward to this race and I am happy that I missed only Indianapolis."

Speaking prior to the news that he will definitely race, Kubica explained that the only reason Sebastian Vettel substituted for him in America was due to the risk of brain damage had he had another accident so soon following that in Montreal.

"The reason why I wasn't allowed to drive at Indianapolis had nothing to do with how I felt," he confirmed.

"Instead, the problem was the risk involved in suffering a second accident within such a short space of time. That's also why I wasn't allowed to test last week [at Silverstone]. But I've used the time to focus intensively on preparing for this next race."
