Romain Grosjean on Friday afternoon was cleared fit to drive in practice for the Singapore Grand Prix.

After a brief appearance at the Marina Bay circuit, the French-Swiss returned to his hotel on Thursday to recover from a bout of food poisoning.

Renault team reserve Lucas di Grassi was put on standby, performing the 'five second' cockpit extrication test in the garage.

Ultimately however Grosjean felt better on Friday, and will appear in the R29 as of the forthcoming initial Friday practice session.

The logos of ING and Mutua Madrilena have been removed from the team's cars and equipment overnight, but there has not been time to alter things like team clothing and press paper, which still bears the names of the departed sponsors.
