Wilson will be fine for Brazil

Minardi driver Justin Wilson is, as expected, back to full fitness after his problems with HANS in Malaysia and he will be in action again with the team at Interlagos this weekend. Minardi is understood to have modified the way in which the HANS device is secured to avoid a repetition of the problem and so Wilson should not have any further difficulties.

Rubens Barrichello, who has been the chief critic of HANS is recent weeks, says he is now happy with the modifications that have been made to the system by Ferrari. Hopefully, therefore, there will be no more problems with the system and it will become part of the normal safety equipment in F1.
