An Australian state court has potentially cleared the way for Formula One driver Giedo van der Garde to compete in this weekend’s season-opening Grand Prix in Melbourne after his legal challenge against Sauber was ruled successful, although the racing team has appealed the decision. The Dutch driver was challenging to get a spot in Sunday’s race with Swiss F1 team Sauber, which replaced him as a driver late last year. Sauber’s lawyers had argued van der Garde was an unacceptable risk because he wasn’t trained in the team’s car and he did not have a custom seat, but van der Garde’s lawyer Tom Clarke said his client was ready to work with the team to get a seat fitted before racing begins.
