Fernando Alonso has productive day on simulator

McLaren Honda driver Fernando Alonso has tweeted his delight after spending a highly productive day at the simulator ahead of his return to action for the team following a horrific crash in practice before the start of the season opening Australian Grand Prix.

Alonso had been recuperating after suffering a concussion following the crash during pre-season testing and as he looks to make a fast comeback to the cockpit, he spent much time on Wednesday behind the wheels on the simulator, tweeting that he had a very productive day with lots of meetings and simulation work.

But just behind the wheels on the simulator will not be enough for Alonso to race at the Malaysian Grand Prix as he will have to pass several rigorous medical tests before he will be given the all clear certificate to return to action.

The 33 year old former double world champion spent three days in hospital following the crash. Fernando Alonso is planning to go through all those tests during this week as he prepares to return to competitive racing for his new team at the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Briatore Says Alonso Was Tired Of Ferrari’s Promises

Alonso made up his mind to leave Ferrari over a year ago. This is the claim made by Flavio Briatore who has had the leading role in the Spanish driver’s management as it was a part of his great career.

After being in red for five years, Fernando Alonso has finally decided to return to McLaren in 2015 as he wants to be a part of the team’s experience with Honda. Briatore informed Italy’s La Gazzettadello Sport that Alonso had already made up his mind to leave Ferrari back in 2013. He said that he had made a gentleman’s agreement with Montezemolo stating that if he isn’t given a winning car in 2014, he will leave. This is because he was tired of listening to the usual response that next year he will get a wining car.
