De la Rosa to have fitness test before Indianapolis race

Arrows driver Pedro de la Rosa will undergo a fitness test ahead of the United States Grand Prix at Indianapolis to determine whether he is fit enough to participate in the 15th round.

The 29-year-old Spaniard escaped from a spectacular shunt when his car somersaulted through the air at the la Roggia chicane in the Italian Grand Prix at Monza after a collision with Jaguar's Johnny Herbert.

De la Rosa's A21 chassis landed on top of the McLaren of David Coulthard and he will be given a full examination by Arrows' physiotherapist Simon Jones before his place in the Indianapolis race is confirmed.

"I'll do a full spinal assessment and a full muscular and soft tissue assessment just to make sure he feels okay and I'm happy with him," Jones said.

"He assures me he is okay, but that's something I want to do myself. We'll be straight into our pre-race prep for Indianapolis on Tuesday morning."
