Fernando Alonso not yet cleared to drive in F1 Chinese GP

McLaren-Honda F1 team is “confident” Fernando Alonso will be shown the green light for his return to racing action this weekend in Chinese Grand Prix.

With the McLaren-Honda driver sidelined in Bahrain with chest injuries following his huge Melbourne crash, Spaniard Alonso has been giving insight into his recovery to followers of his social media accounts.

On Twitter, his latest posts are photos of his former wins for Ferrari and Renault in Shanghai.

On Facebook, he published videos of himself enjoying downtime at his home with his entourage including physio Fabrizio Borra, and on Instagram he showed a photo of what appears to be a big bruise on his back.

“Gradually increasing the training session,” Alonso wrote on Saturday. “Mainly indoor bicycle and elastics — the ones you are allowed with a broken rib! Happy with how things are going.”

Alonso will not be cleared to race in China until a meeting with FIA doctors on Thursday.

“We are confident that Alonso will pass the test, but the FIA will have the final word,” McLaren team boss Eric Boullier is quoted by El Mundo Deportivo newspaper.
