It’s a welcome green light for Fernando Alonso…
The 33-year-old Spanish Formula One racing driver has been cleared to race at the Malaysian Grand Prix after missing the Formula One season opener following a crash in testing.
The McLaren driver, a two-time world champion, has followed a “rigorous, specialized training program” since last month’s accident and he has been ruled fit after a final medical assessment by the FIA governing body.
Reserve driver Kevin Magnussen was 17th after taking Alonso’s place in the March 15 Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne. The Malaysian GP at the Sepang International Circuit is on Sunday.
