Lewis Hamilton will race in the European Grand Prix after being passed fit by the FIA doctors ahead of today's race.

Although a precautionary hospital visit was in order following his high-speed shunt in qualifying for the race at the Nurburgring, it was revealed by both driver and team that Hamilton had escaped any injury and was feeling fit enough to race.

Even so, FIA Medical Delegate Gary Hartstein and Chief Medical Officer Dr Klaus U. Zerbian still had the final word on whether championship leader Hamilton would be able to take part in the race, a decision they have duly made.

Hamilton will still have a job to do though if he is to maintain his run of podiums as he will be forced to start tenth on the grid having failed to set a flying lap

His McLaren-Mercedes came off at the track at the Schumacher S courtesy of a front-right tyre collapse as a result of an air gun failure whilst in the pit lane.
