Injured Wurz given the all-clear

Austria's Alexander Wurz has been given the go-ahead to compete in the Hungarian Grand Prix despite injuring his right leg in a training crash.

He sustained the injury, which is not described as serious, when his Benetton went off the track during a training session in Valencia on Saturday, said Austria's APA news agency.

"Alexander must rest for a few days but he will be able to compete in Hungary," Benetton press spokeswoman Julia Horden told APA.

The 26-year-old is taking part in his third Formula One season, after finishing eighth and 13th in his previous attempts.

In the 2000 championship, he has largely been in the shadow of team-mate Giancarlo Fisichella, who is currently lying in fifth.

Wurz has yet to score this term, and will be keen to break his duck on Sunday at the Hungaroring where he was just pushed out of the points by Damon Hill in 1999.
