Fernando Alonso has spoken about the hand injury he has to fight through behind the wheel.

Alonso had a crash during the Australian GP qualifying due to a hydraulic issue earlier this year. It not only affected his starting position in the race the following day, but also made an impact on his physical shape. The Spaniard had his hand injured as a result of the accident as he had not removed his hands from the steering wheel.

Alonso revealed what the scale of the injury was and how much time it would take to make a full recovery.

“[It’s] bones, ligaments, tendons, everything is a mess at the moment,” he said.

“I need two or three months and there is no surgery, nothing you can do. Just rest. Unfortunately, every two weeks I have to drive, so I try to rest at home but it will take a few months.”
