Fernando Alonso reported to have told doctors “I’m Fernando I race karts and I want to be a formula one driver.” after the Barcelona F1 test accident.

Recently McLaren team boss have confirmed to Sky Sports that the Spaniard suffered ‘temporary memory loss’ after his crash in Barcelona testing.

Spanish daily Le Pais, initially reported this news and they claims that when the 33-year-old regained consciousness, he thought it was 1995.

The newspaper said Alonso took a week to recover his memories of the past 20 years, including his Minardi debut in 2001, his two titles with Renault and his switch from Ferrari to McLaren-Honda for 2015.

“It was just a normal concussion [with] a loss of temporary memory,” Boullier told Sky Sports F1.

“It’s not as dramatic as you read in the media. Everything is back to normal.”

“He’s very frustrated not to be in the car but he will be connected to us through all the debriefs by video link,” Boullier added.

“When you have a concussion, you have to respect a 21-day recovery period. The doctors have given us their advice and a strong recommendation which we are following.”

McLaren chief Ron Dennis also told a press conference in Barcelona that Alonso “was unconscious for a relatively short period of time” after the accident.

The Woking based team also hardly believes that Alonso will comeback Malaysian GP with full fitness. And team confirms “already everything is normal and Medical test will conduct for his reaction times”.

“We wish Fernando Alonso a very speedy recovery before the Malasian GP”
