    Default Alonso fitness question

    For those who may not have seen it yet:-

    Alonso was reportedly travelling at 310 kmph just before the crash. Data indicates 46 g's as a result of the crash. Alonso's seat cracked at around shoulder height. I have read in Scandinavian media that there is some question mark over Alonso's fitness to race this weekend's Bahrain race as he has been reportedly suffering from headaches and been unable to sleep.

    The other issue as a result of the crash is that Alonso's power unit needs to be replaced, which could become an issue later in the year.

    I have read one report that claimed Haas data indicates that Gutierrez's car went into a safety mode, losing 150 hp just before the braking point ( at around the time of the accident), so the accident may not have been so much of Alonso's misjudgment, but just wrong place at the wrong time.

    Alonso failed to get a medical clearance on Thursday morning to drive this weekend at Bahrain.

    So true. Fortunately the cars have come a long way from the 60's and 70's in terms of safety.

    Apparently Alonso's car was airborne for some 48 meters.

    A collapsed lung and rib fractures are merely "flesh wounds" in F1, apparently!
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............

    Alonso is uncertain about getting clearance to race this weekend in China.

    Alonso has a new girl friend. Scroll down for the images, apparently she is a Russian model

    Alonso has received conditional clearance. He is permitted to take part in Friday practice after which the Doctors will examine him again before making a final decision for the race.
