The Alpine F1 Team says Fernando Alonso is “completely fit” to drive in Formula 1 pre-season testing next week after his cycling accident.

The two-time World Champion Fernando Alonso will make his comeback to Formula 1 with Alpine F1 Team this year. The Spaniard suffered a cycling accident in Switzerland and had to receive surgery. However, Alpine’s CEO Laurent Rossi says the driver is ‘completely fit’ to get in the car.

“Fernando is doing very well,” Rossi said. “He had a bad accident. A bike accident is rarely something that goes easy, but he was lucky, and he ended up only suffering from his jaw.

“So besides the necessary surgery and care on his jaw, the rest is totally fine. Fernando is completely fit. He is totally operational.

“We are even surprised that he’s recovered so quickly. He confirmed to us almost immediately after the incident that he will be in Bahrain, which has been confirmed with his doctors.

“It looks like he was right because he’s absolutely fit, and we are looking forward to seeing him next week in the car,” he concluded.
