Alonso to sit out Bahrain GP

Fernando Alonso will not race in this weekend's Bahrain Grand Prix on medical grounds.

Alonso was involved in a serious crash at the Australian Grand Prix when his McLaren slammed into a wall at turn three before barrel-rolling through the air.

The Spaniard managed to walk away from the crash but he has been barred from racing in Bahrain after failing medical tests.

Doctors revealed his chest scans "showed insufficient resolution of the signs to allow him to compete" and he will have to be re-examined before the Chinese Grand Prix in two weeks' time.

“Two sets of chest CT scans were compared and it was decided that there was insufficient resolution of the signs to allow him to compete on safety grounds,” read an FIA statement.

“A repeat chest scan has been requested before the Chinese Grand prix and the results will be considered before allowing him to race there.”

As a result, McLaren reserve driver Stoffel Vandoorne will make his Grand Prix debut this weekend.
