Cape Town - Two-time Formula One world champion Fernando Alonso is making a
"solid recovery" from a spectacular crash in testing, his McLaren team
said, blaming the accident on "gusty winds".
Alonso, 33, crashed into a wall during testing
at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya on Sunday and was airlifted
to hospital under sedation.
Alonso suffered concussion, but the team said scans were "completely normal."
His manager Luis Garcia Abad put up a picture of a smiling Alonso
sitting up in bed on Twitter.
