Fernando Alonso has been declared fit to return to the cockpit of his McLaren-Honda this weekend.

The Spaniard had already been given the green light prior to travelling to Malaysia this week by a panel of FIA-nominated doctors at Cambridge university.

But he also had to satisfy FIA medical delegate Jean-Charles Piette on Thursday, as well as Sepang’s resident doctor.

“In accordance with normal procedures, McLaren-Honda driver Fernando Alonso was this morning examined by the FIA medical delegate and chief medical officer at the Sepang Circuit Medical Centre,” said the FIA in a statement.

“During the examination the driver passed all mandatory fitness tests and has thus been declared fit to race in this weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix.”
