D'Ambrosio allowed to race on Sunday

Jerome D'Ambrosio, VirginJerome D'Ambrosio will be allowed to start tomorrow's Canadian Grand Prix despite having failed to set a time within the 107 per cent in qualifying.

The Virgin driver set at best time of 1m19.414s, with the 107 per cent time being 1m18.989s.

Despite not being fast enough in qualifying, the stewards decided to allow the Belgian to race, having taken into consideration the fact that he was using a new chassis today.

D'Ambrosio crashed heavily during second practice yesterday, forcing his team to build a new car around the spare chassis, as the rules don't allow for drivers to use the full spare car.
