Oh dear and yet again Mclaren Honda dont get many laps in but at least it does not appear to be a mechanical problem this time
Fernando Alonso is undergoing what his McLaren team say are "precautionary checks" in hospital after a heavy crash in testing.
The two-time champion hit the wall on the exit of the 150mph Turn Three at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, one of Formula 1's most demanding corners. McLaren, who have given no information on what caused the accident, said he was "conscious and spoke with doctors". Alonso's adviser Luis Garcia Abad added on Twitter that the driver was "OK". The incident happened at 12:35 local time on Sunday, shortly before the lunch break on the final day of the second of three pre-season tests. It is unclear whether Alonso made a mistake or something broke on the car. McLaren said the car "left the track at Turn Three, causing the right-hand side of his car to strike the wall" on the inside of the circuit.
