Sauber driver Pascal Wehrlein has been cleared by doctors to race at next week’s Canadian Grand Prix.

The 22-year-old German was hurt in a crash with Jenson Button in Monaco on Sunday, his car ending up on its side against the barriers with Wehrlein trapped inside.

He injured his back but has now had medical tests and is allowed to race.

“Checks all done, see you in Montreal,” he tweeted.
