Alesi Declared Fit to Race in Hungary

Jean Alesi has been cleared by his doctors to race at the upcoming Hungarian Grand Prix, Prost confirmed yesterday. The French driver was suffering from abdominal pains following his crash with Pedro Diniz in last week's German Grand Prix.

Although Alesi is medically clear to participate in the Hungarian race, he may decide not to race after all, if he continues to suffer pain. Prost test driver, Stephane Sarrazin, will travel with the team to Hungary and will be on stand-by to replace Alesi on such a case.

"Jean is feeling better and really wants to race," Prost spokesman said. "There shouldn't be a problem, but you never know: if the pain returns after the first day of practice, Stephane can replace Jean."

Sarrazin himself participated in testing last week, in preparation for the Hungarian Grand Prix. Following that he said, "It was a case of getting used to the car. I need to know how it will work if Jean does not drive in Hungary. The test proved quite useful to me."
