Mar.31 (GMM) Kazuki Nakajima insists he is fully fit to tackle the Malaysian grand prix

Just four days before he was due to begin practicing at the Sepang circuit, the Japanese driver had a heavy crash into Albert Park’s concrete walls during the 2009 season opener

The 24-year-old admitted blame for the lap-17 shunt and headed to the circuit medical centre for a precautionary check

“Everything is fine and physically I am okay,” the Williams driver said last Sunday

However, Nakajima has now revealed that he knocked his hand in the impact at turn four

“It was quite a big impact,” he said, “but I’m fine except for a sore knuckle on my left hand. I’ll be fine to race in Malaysia.”n
