Fernando Alonso has been passed fit to race for McLaren at this weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix.
Alonso was forced to miss the Australian Grand Prix after he suffered a concussion in a testing accident in Barcelona last month.
The Spaniard underwent a series of medical tests at Cambridge University last week before flying out to Malaysia, and successfully passed an FIA assessment on Thursday morning in Sepang.
“In accordance with normal procedures, McLaren-Honda driver Fernando Alonso was this morning examined by the FIA medical delegate and chief medical officer at the Sepang circuit medical centre,” read an FIA statement.
“During the examination the driver passed all mandatory fitness tests and has thus been declared fit to race in this weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix.”
