After a day of discussion between McLaren and FIA officials the governing body has finally cleared Fernando Alonso to race in the Chinese GP.
There was an extensive debate today about the paperwork and also the regulatory framework related to a driver returning from injury.
Alonso will have to undergo a further examination after FP1 before being cleared to compete for the rest of the weekend. The FIA said: “He is instructed by the FIA Medical Delegate and Chief Medical Officer to undergo a further examination immediately following FP1 to determine his further eligibility to take part in the remainder of the Event.”
One response to “FIA clears Alonso to race in Chinese GP”
Alas, too bad for Stoffel ….
He may well have to sit out the rest of this season, and that is McLaren’s loss.
