Nico Rosberg and Vitantonio Liuzzi have been given the all clear to start the Japanese Grand Prix, despite both failing to set a timed lap within the 107% rule.

Rosberg was hit by a hydraulic issue which meant he was unable to compete and will start 23rd, a place ahead of Liuzzi who suffered an engine issue during Q1.
