Fernando Alonso will miss the opening race of the Formula One season in Australia after suffering concussion on February 22, 2015Two-time Formula One world champion Fernando Alonso will miss the opening race of the 2015 season in Australia after suffering concussion in a crash in testing, his McLaren team confirmed on Tuesday. "Fernando’s doctors have recommended to him that, following the concussion he sustained in a testing accident at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on February 22nd, for the time being he should seek to limit as far as is possible any environmental risk factors that could potentially result in his sustaining another concussion so soon after his previous one, so as to minimise the chances of second impact syndrome, as is normal medical procedure when treating athletes after concussions," McLaren said in a statement. The 33-year-old Spaniard crashed into a wall at the track in Barcelona when he ran wide on the final day of the second pre-season test and had to be air-lifted to hospital under sedation. Alonso spent three nights in hospital before being released and as a result sat out the final testing session in Barcelona last week so as to rest and recuperate at home in the northern Spanish city of Oviedo.
