Alonso: Fu**ing weeks, but I’m ready to run

Fernando Alonso spent Thursday morning routine medical examination of the FIA and, a few hours later, spoke to the media without knowing the FIA’s final answer ” It’s been fucking weeks of not sleeping well, but now I feel better, fine. I’m ready to run but the decision is theirs.” (source: elconfidencial)

“If I was not sure I was not flying here,” he told reporters.

“I did it once in Bahrain and it was quite tough to be there all weekend.

“Last Sunday I took flight from Milan to Shanghai and I am 100 percent confident I will be okay.”

When asked by Motorsport.com what was causing the hold-up, he said: “I don’t know. It is a question for them [the FIA] probably.

“Sometimes it is a longer process than we would like or think from the outside because there are some things behind, and some procedures and some paperwork or whatever.

“It is not that you arrive there, you are okay and we all feel okay. Still before it is written it takes a little bit of time and I guess it is the thing that has been happening.

“I was expecting the decision 10 minutes ago to sit with you and talk about something more precise, but probably it will be in the next couple of hours. As long as this is before tomorrow 10am we will be okay.”

The Spaniard having been sidelined in Bahrain with chest injuries sustained in his huge Melbourne crash.

AS newspaper, a Spanish sports daily, claims Alonso is now completely recovered from the lung problem that actually sidelined him in Bahrain.

Reports have suggested the 34-year-old still has a fractured rib, but while Alonso and McLaren-Honda sound “cautious, the truth is that they have full confidence that he will race”, AS added.

“Fernando has already had the relevant scan in the Oviedo (Spain) clinic and it shows an important improvement,” the newspaper declared.
