The former Ferrari man may miss F1’s third test after a heavy shunt in Barcelona.
Fernando Alonso is in doubt for third Formula One test after the two-time world champion spent another night in hospital.
Alonso could spend yet another night in hospital after he suffered concussion in a high-speed crash on the final day of the second test in Barcelona.
McLaren released a statement on Tuesday stating the cause of the crash was an unpredictable gust of wind, putting to bed theories of ERS electrocution.
Alonso’s manager Luis Garcia Abad said the length of the former Ferrari man’s stay in hospital is still undetermined.
“He will remain here the time that we need to be sure that everything is fine,” said Garcia Abad is quoted as saying by Speedcafe.
“The impact was quite hard and we want to be sure that everything is fine. I can’t say is it is one, two or three days more.
‘F1 is not a game’ and that he wants to be certain his driver is back in peak condition before he returns to the car.
“The information is quite difficult to understand. When I arrived at the hospital, Fernando was conscious and fine in this aspect, which is the most important thing, but now is fine. The crash was very hard and he has to recover because it was a serious impact.
“F1 is not a game, we have to be sure that he is ready to drive the car at the right time because we want to be competitive to the last race of the season.”
McLaren is yet to confirm if Alonso will be replaced, but have adequate backup in Kevin Magnussen and Stoffel Vandoorne.
