Schu relieved at tyre guru news

Wed, 21 June 2006, 09:22

Michael Schumacher will be relieved at news that, despite earlier uncertainty, a key member of his team will attend F1’s American races.

Kees van der Grint, a high ranking Bridgestone engineer who liaises closely with Ferrari and its number one driver, recently had an eye operation and was unsure about whether to fly across the Atlantic.

But it is now expected that, after medical clearance, the Dutchman – who met Schumacher at a Formula Three race in 1989 – will take his usual place in the pit lanes of Montreal and Indianapolis.gmmf1
