Ilmor GP rider Jeremy McWilliams is set to race tomorrow at the Commercialbank Grand Prix Of Qatar, despite suffering a crash in today's qualifying session. The Northern Irishman looked to have re-injured his still sore leg when he took a highside on a fast section of the Losail International Circuit, but later it was confirmed that there was no breakage.

Following the session, McWilliams was taken to the Medical Centre to rest and receive a precautionary X-ray. "It was a pity that I couldn't have a full qualifying session, as the bike was really improving," commented the veteran. "I've just got a few bumps and bruises, but I can still put weight on my leg so I think I should be ok to race."
