Frentzen and Heidfeld both fit

JORDAN driver Heinz Harald Frentzen and Sauber's Nick Heidfeld have both been declared fit to race at the European Grand Prix this weekend.

Frentzen was replaced by test-driver Ricardo Zonta at Montreal after suffering with headaches. But now the German driver is ready to get back behind the wheel at the Nurburgring.

Frentzen said: "I feel fine. As you know I had concussion in Montreal in practice on Friday. Right after the crash, I didn't realize but in the evening I got more and more headaches.

"I had some tests with doctors and fortunately it was only concussion, but it wasn't concussion, and Sid (Watkins - medical delegate) said I should take a rest and watch the testing at Silverstone."

Sauber team boss Peter Sauber has also stated that Heidfeld will be back for the team after suffering with headaches and dizziness at Canada following a crash.

Sauber said: "Nick has done all the necessary checks at the hospital and with the doctor and he is very prepared for the race, and you will see him practice on Friday."
