Alonso in heavy testing crash.
It happened today at the Circuit de Catalunia in Barcelona. Alonso lost control of his Mclaren-Honda coming out of turn 4. From the pictures it's hard to tell what the dynamic of the accident might be but the car does not look severely damaged.
However Alonso was in the car for 10 minutes before medical personnel extracted him. Reports say that Alonso complained of dizziness and was then loaded onto a stretcher and taken to the hospital for observation.
His manager, Luis Garcia Abad tweeted:
"Fernando está bien y consciente. Muchas gracias por vuestro interés. Fernando is OK and conscious. Thank you !"
Hopefully, nothing too serious.
