Lance Stroll has declared himself fit for the Japanese Grand Prix after suggestions he would miss the Suzuka race following his Singapore accident.

Stroll sat out the race at Marina Bay after crashing heavily at the final corner in qualifying, destroying the AMR23.

In what was a mutual decision with the team, Stroll, who was feeling 'sore' following the high-g impact, posted the first DNS of his F1 career.

The Canadian passed all of the FIA's concussion checks at the time, but there doubts on social media leading up to the Suzuka weekend that Stroll would not take part, but he has posted on Twitter that he is "ready to race" in what will be his fifth Japanese GP.

Team boss Mike Krack was also adamant that Stroll would be fine to race, and that he had no 'concerns' about him.

"Lance is very strong, he's much stronger than you think," Krack told media including RacingNews365.

"You have seen him in the TV pen [after the accident,] so I am not concerned that there will be anything [wrong].

"He will be in the car, and he will be fast."
