Spyker's B-spec car has been given the all-clear to race at the Italian Grand Prix after finally passing its crash test earlier this week.
The updated car had originally been due to race for the first time in Turkey last weekend but the team had to change plans at the last minute when it failed its mandatory rear impact test.
Further work on the car conducted over the weekend ensured that the car passed without problems on Tuesday, meaning Adrian Sutil and Sakon Yamamoto will now use it at Monza.
Sutil tested the car for the first time at Monza yesterday, while Yamamoto is scheduled to drive it today depending on weather conditions at the Italian track.
Dominic Harlow, chief race and test engineer, said: "In terms of our preparation for the race here in ten days time our progress looks promising and we know that there is plenty of potential in the new car."
