f1: Alonso crashes in testing
Two-time world champion Fernando Alonso brought the morning session on the final day of the second pre-season test in Barcelona to a premature end when he crashed the McLaren-Honda MP4-30. The Spaniard had managed just 20 laps on another troubled morning for the struggling giants, who lag well behind every other team on the grid in terms of mileage with the start of the season less than a month away. Alonso received medical attention at the circuit and was then airlifted to hospital. “Fernando Alonso’s McLaren-Honda car left the track at turn three, causing the right-hand side of his car to strike the wall,” McLaren said in a statement.
