Slowest Racer in Town...
- Nov 24, 2009
Happened an hour or so ago.
The McLaren driver apparently hit a wall at the Circuit de Catalunya circuit at lunchtime on Sunday on the exit of the 150 mph Turn Three, but the BBC report that he is "OK and conscious".
Reports say he has been airlifted to hospital from the circuit's medical centre, but it is claimed it is just a precautionary measure after the crash.
"Fernando Alonso crashed in the end of Turn Three. The car has gone back and crashed into the wall," a statement from the circuit said.
