Zoel Amberg has revealed the extent of his physical difficulties which restrict the amount of racing he can compete in.
The Swiss driver told the Lazarus website that he feels sick, develops pressure on the cranium and suffers “overall physical discomfort” while driving the GP2 car.
“This is all very sad and frustrating, but my actual physical conditions do not allow me to race a car without feeling sick and causing me an overall physical discomfort,” Amberg said.
“Now, when I’m driving after the two accidents in Monte Carlo, I feel some sort of pressure on the cranium or develop a headache. So far medical tests couldn’t reveal the cause.”
The 22-year-old sat out the GP2 weekend in Budapest due to these problems, originally thought to be back and neck pains. He also missed the event in Austria and Great Britain after his FIA superlicence was suspended; a normal procedure for a driver in such circumstances.
He will undergo in-depth examinations next week in order to find the root of the problems he is suffering from.
