Luis García Abad,Fernando Alonso‘s agent, took to social media to reassure the Spaniard’s fans with this photo of the driver smiling and making a thumbs-up gesture from his bed at Catalonia General Hospital. “Lunch time! Thank you for your support!”, was the message posted alongside the pic.
McLaren have released a statement giving their account of Alonso’s accident and explaining that the Spaniard’s test results have all been positive and that he is being kept under observation so as “to provide the privacy and tranquillity required to facilitate a peaceful recuperation” and “to recover from the effects of the medication”. It remains unknown when the two-time world champion will return to the track.
