The Toro Rosso driver was airlifted to hospital after the incident at Turn 13 but scans later revealed that he had no injuries. The FIA passed him fit after a medical check and he will now take his place on the grid.
He posted a video from the hospital in which he said: “As you can see, I am fine. My back and my neck are just a bit sore from the accident, but I’m totally ready. Hopefully tomorrow I will wake up in a good shape and maybe I can try and race -- this is definitely the intention! Obviously we need to be cautious ... I’ve always been conscious.”

Toro Rosso repaired Sainz's car overnight and have now confirmed they will let him race. "All the medical checks are positive for Carlos," team principal Franz Tost told reporters.
"He feels very well, he feels very strong and therefore I don't see any reason not to allow him to go to the start."
Sainz had been listed already at the back of the provisional starting grid, next to the McLaren of compatriot Fernando Alonso and behind fellow-Spaniard Roberto Merhi, after Toro Rosso sought permission from the stewards for him to take part.
