F1 Chinese GP: Alonso given green light to race in Chinese GP

Fernando Alonso passes his final medical examination to get the go ahead to race in the Chinese Grand Prix.
Fernando Alonso has been given the formal green light to race in the Chinese Grand Prix after passing his final medical assessment.

The Spaniard, who suffered broken ribs after a massive high-speed accident during the season opening Australian Grand Prix causing him to miss the second race in Bahrain, received the go ahead to get back in the McLaren-Honda for FP1 on Thursday.

However, due to the belated nature of the injury discovery – several days after the accident – he required an additional post-session examination to get the final pass.

This has now been received, albeit with the stipulation that if 'any abnormal symptoms' are experienced, he must stop the car immediately.

“As a result of the medical examination undertaken following FP1, the FIA F1 Medical Delegate, Prof. Jean-Charles Piette, and the Chief Medical Officer of the Chinese Grand Prix, Prof.Shiyi Chen, have ruled that Fernando Alonso is fit to take part in all remaining sessions this weekend.

“However, as with this morning's session, in case of any abnormal symptoms the driver has been informed that he must stop his car immediately.

“As the driver has been cleared to take part, no further medical checks will be undertaken unless the drivers presents any abnormal symptoms.”

Alonso was 12th fastest in FP1, his first time back in the car for nearly a month.
