Alonso getting better after crash….

Fernando Alonso

Two-time world champion Fernando Alonso is making a “solid recovery” just a day after his crash in Formula 1 testing. His McLaren team also revealed he had undergone a “thorough and complete analysis” and the results were “completely normal”. They added the accident was down to unpredictable “gusty winds” and there was “no evidence” his car suffered “mechanical failure of any kind”. The Spaniard, 33, is being kept in hospital for further observation. A photo of a smiling Alonso sitting up in his hospital bed was also posted on social media by his manager. It was accompanied by the message: “Lunch time! Thank you for your support!” Alonso suffered concussion after hitting the wall on the exit of a right-hand turn at the Circuit de Catalunya. Cars can reach speeds of 150mph at that point on the track, although Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, who was following Alonso at the time of the crash, said his rival’s speed was more like 90mph.
