Medical checks done; Wehrlein cleared for Canadian GP


Pascal Wehrlein had a wild ride to end his Monaco Grand Prix, after the Sauber driver was tipped into a roll by McLaren returnee Jenson Button.

Button’s been penalized for the contact – although it’s meaningless since he’s not expected to return to another Grand Prix – while the question of whether Wehrlein would be good to go then emerged since it was a goofy looking accident where he was pinned against the wall, even though he got out under his own power.

Alas, Wehrlein posted Thursday he has cleared all pre-race checks and will be good to go for the Canadian Grand Prix (Sunday, June 11, 2 p.m. ET, NBC).
