Heikki KovalainenMcLaren’s Heikki Kovalainen has passed this morning the mandatory FIA Medical test following his hi-speed crash at Barcelona’s Circuit during the Spanish Grand Prix and will race regularly in this weekend’s Turkish Grand Prix. “I am obviously very pleased with the decision by the FIA Medical Team,” commented the Finn.

“I arrived here today feeling confident that I would pass the FIA test as I feel 100 percent and if I had not felt 100 percent I would have told the team already and stayed at home. My preparation for this weekend has gone well and we have done a lot of fitness training. Obviously a big thumbs up for all the FIA safety standards and the guys in Spain who worked hard to get me out of the car safely,” he added.

“I think the accident probably looked worse than it was for me. I had a little headache but was back in training almost immediately. I now look forward to the rest of the weekend and the rest of the season.”
