Alonso thanks fans for the support


Fernando Alonso has assured his fans that he is "completely fine" and wishes he could be in action this week in Spain.

The double World Champion is sitting out the final pre-season test after crashing last Sunday at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Alonso, who crashed his McLaren MP4-30 into the wall at the exit of Turn 3, spent three nights in hospital undergoing observation.

Declared well enough to leave on Wednesday, doctors insisted the Spaniard rest rather than take part in the final pre-season test.

Alonso, though, says he is fine and is looking forward to getting back in the car.

"As you can see I'm completely fine and I would like to be in the test this week in Barcelona but the doctors recommendations are to wait a little bit – a couple of days," Alonso said on YouTube.

"I will rest this weekend and I will keep you updated next week with progress and see you very soon on the track.

"And thanks for all the support."
