Wehrlein cleared to test

Date published: March 6 2017

Pascal Wehrlein will be behind the wheel of Sauber’s C36 come Tuesday’s running at the Circuit de Catalunya after being given the go-ahead by doctors.

Wehrlein was kept out of the opening pre-season test having injured his back when he crashed in January’s Race of Champions.

His place in the opening test was handed to Ferrari’s third driver Antonio Giovinazzi while team-mate Marcus Ericsson was also in action.

Wehrlein, though, has now been cleared to take part in the second test which begins in Spain on Tuesday.
