UPDATED: Fernando Alonso Taken To Hospital After Crashing Car

Fernando Alonso is said to be “ok and conscious” after crashing during the final day of pre-season testing in Barcelona.

The McLaren driver apparently hit a wall at the Circuit de Catalunya circuit at lunchtime on Sunday on the exit of the 150 mph Turn Three, but the BBC report that he is “OK and conscious”.

Reports say he has been airlifted to hospital from the circuit’s medical centre, but it is just a precautionary measure after the crash.

“Today at 12:35 , while testing at the Circuit de Catalunya (Barcelona), during the fourth and final day of the current test, Fernando Alonso’s McLaren-Honda car left the track at Turn Three, causing the right-hand side of his car to strike the wall,” said McLaren in a statement.

“Fernando was driven to the circuit’s Medical Centre where the circuit’s doctors gave him first aid.

“He was conscious and spoke with the doctors.

“However, as per usual procedure in such circumstances, he was then airlifted to hospital where he is undergoing precautionary checks.

“We will issue a further update in due course.”

NB: Following tests carried out on him, it was just released some few minutes ago that he has no injuries. Thank God he is ok and conscious as earlier reported.
