James Calado will participate in Sunday's GP2 sprint race in Singapore despite suffering from food poisoning.
The Lotus driver was forced to retire from Saturday's feature race because of the illness, and there were fears that he would join Coloni driver Luca Filippi on the sidelines today.
But after treatment since the race, the 23-year-old now feels fit enough to start.
"I'll be okay for race two," Calado told AUTOSPORT.
"The doctors have been pumping fluids through my system. It feels as though they've drained me completely and started again - but I'm now feeling about 90 per cent better.
"I had to attempt to take part yesterday, but as the race went on I started feeling weaker and weaker.
"Every time I hit the brake pedal it felt as though I might throw up, so in the end I had no choice but to stop."
