Heidfeld fit for Sao Paulo finale

Mon, 16 October 2006, 12:44

Nick Heidfeld will be well enough to complete the 2006 season for BMW-Sauber at Brazil despite falling ill at the Jerez test last week.

The German did just a single installation lap at the Spanish circuit on Friday after he felt ill upon arrival on Thursday evening.

But although Heidfeld is understood to have recovered over the weekend and is scheduled to fly to Sao Paulo on Tuesday, it is worth mentioning that the 29-year-old had to sit out the Brazilian grand prix one year ago after his bicycling accident.

He was quoted as saying on Friday: “I hope to round off the season with a successful race.”
