Monday 04-November-2013 05:33

Fernando Alonso has been given the all-clear after precautionary checks in hospital following his trip over the kerbs in Abu Dhabi.

Coming out of the pits after his second stop, Alonso was alongside Jean-Eric Vergne and had to take action to avoid the Toro Rosso.

That action included running wide off the track and having to mount the kerbs to rejoin.

Taking a heavy jolt to his back, Alonso, who finished in fifth place, went to the local hospital for precautionary checks.

The Spaniard was given the all-clear.

"I still have all my teeth after the impact," the double World Champion said.

"My back is obviously in pain a little bit because it was a big hit."
