Fernando Alonso was hit by a car. The start of the season is uncertain
The incident raises questions about Alonso’s ability to line up at the start of the season in next month’s race in Bahrain. The pre-season tests are scheduled in Bahrain from March 12-14, before the first race on March 26-28.
Alonso, who turns 39 this month, will team up with Esteban Ocon at Alpine, as the Renault team is now called. The Spaniard replaced Daniel Ricciardo, who left for McLaren.
Alonso, winner of 32 Grands Prix and world champion in 2005 and 2006, left Formula 1 at the end of 2018, after four seasons without results at McLaren.
Alonso has already missed the start of a season due to an injury. In 2015, when he had just returned to McLaren, he suffered a concussion following an accident during the tests and had to give up the first race in Australia.
