Fernando Alonso will have to return to hospital at the end of the season

He agrees, only his personal life is impacted. Fernando Alonso suffered a heavy fall from his bike last month, which resulted in a broken jaw. The Alpine pilot had to undergo surgery. Since then, he has worn titanium plates on the upper part of his jaw.

An inconvenience that will follow him throughout the season. “On a personal level, I will obviously have to remove the two plates at the end of the season so I will return to the hospital. But that won’t affect my professional life, the two-time world champion said on the sidelines of pre-season testing in Bahrain.

The Spaniard said he was able to prepare properly for his return to Formula 1 this season with Alpine, despite his absence during the presentation ceremony of the Alpine A521. “I trained for two or three weeks and was able to do normal simulator sessions. In fact, I just missed a few marketing sessions, which is a good thing in a way! ”

Fernando Alonso, 39, is due to get behind the wheel of the Alpine for the first time on Saturday, on the second day of testing.
