FIGHTING FIT: Mexican rookie Sergio Perez will take his place on the starting grid of the Canadian Grand Prix.

Mexican Formula 1 rookie Sergio Perez has been cleared to race in this weekend's 2011 Canadian GP.

The 21-year-old Sauber driver crashed heavily during qualifying ahead of the Monaco GP two weeks earlier and missed that race due to severe concussion and other slight injuries.

On Thursday, at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, he was given medical clearance to race by F1's official medical officer, Jean Charles Piette.

HOME FOR A WHILE

Perez said: "I just went to do the examination and all the tests again with the FIA and everything was fine. We gave them our results from the doctors and everything is fine to race this weekend.

"After Monaco I flew to Zurich for one check-up with a clinic there and then went back to Mexico.

"I had some days at home, which was very positive for me, then went to do karting on Monday and Tuesday - so I knew I was already OK."
