Alonso is “devoid of all injuries” following testing crash, says Ron Dennis.
Fernando Alonso is “devoid of all injuries” following his testing crash in Barcelona and is expected to line up on the grid for the Australian Grand Prix, says McLaren boss Ron Dennis.
The two-time world champion suffered from concussion following a high-speed crash during testing on Sunday.
Dennis ruled out electrocution from ERS as being as cause for the crash, and says he could not see a reason why Alonso would not be ready for the season opener in Melbourne in two weeks’ time.
“He is devoid of all injuries,” Dennis was quoted as saying Reuters via the BBC.
“We can categorically say he has no injury.
“I’m not a doctor, but I can’t foresee any reason why [Alonso would not race in Australia].
“There is a process of tests laid down by the FIA and I can’t see any reason why he won’t sail through it, but it’s not for me to determine.
“All he wants to do at the moment is to race and test.”
Alonso was released from hospital on Wednesday, but will be replaced in the second Barcelona test by reserve driver Kevin Magnussen.
