He was treated on the scene and transferred to the Spanish circuit’s medical centre, before being airlifted to a nearby hospitalfor further checks.

A McLaren spokesperson has confirmed that Alonso has undergone a CT scan and is “uninjured and fine”.

Alonso managed 20 laps before his accident and was fifth fastest in the morning.
