Fernando Alonso is set to fly out to Malaysia for the final stage of medical assessments after being passed fit by UK-based doctors.

The Spaniard, who missed the opening round of the season in Australia after sustaining concussion in an accident during winter testing, underwent a medical assessment at Cambridge University to determine whether he should travel out to Kuala Lumpur for the Malaysian Grand Prix.

According to Spanish publication Marca he was given the all-clear, paving the way for him to make a return to action with McLaren-Honda, even if he will still have to get an official all-clear once there.
