To be honest, he looked perfectly fine in that first picture which was tweeted, which is one of the reasons there has been confusion over his prolonged stay. Good news that he's out, can't see anyway he'll be able to drive this weekend and it'll be interesting to see if he's a doubt for the first race. Mike Brown (English rugby player) suffered his concussion 10 days ago and has been ruled out for this weekends game. He'll be desperate to race but as others have said it's stupid to take head injuries lightly.
Yeah he's definitely out of this weekend. Australia is two weeks away so he should be able to race there. On a side note, didn't Brown suffer a recurrence of his symptoms? hence him being ruled out of this weekend?

From what I read he just woke up with a headache and they are being extra careful.

i think it is the standard procedure for incidents that generate above-average media-buzz...

edit: just read the AMuS-article on that topic... they say that it is indeed a standard procedure and its aim is to gather data for future safety standards... the article goes on to remind that in 2011 perez had to call off the canada-gp 2 weeks after a concussion he sustained in monaco, due to dizziness... as others have said, a concussion is deemed a relatively light injury but can produce some longer lasting effects, so i guess that's why he had to stay longer in hospital... plus, one would guess that a 30g impact will leave you with some bruises and other hurting body parts...

As long as people are just questioning and not making up information as fact then where is the problem? If you don't like that people are questioning the incident, as some in this thread appear not to, why click the thread to read it? Ignore it, be happy that you know the truth of the incident and let others who are happy to discuss it do just that.

People want to come here and read facts,news and discuss F1. We arent interested in trashy tabloid journalism or fantasists with crazy theories.
Like in 2008 when fantasists with crazy theories reckoned Alonso's Singapore win was suspicious and got laughed out the door
So every conspiracy theory must be true, because one was true?
Not necessarily but I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss cases where everything doesn't appear to add up. And if you think Singapore 2008 was the only conspiracy theory that was true you're kidding yourself

'Some aspects of his life' could be the turn just before the accident, what he had for breakfast the day of the accident, or what school he went to. Journalists are not doctors, so we really can't conclude much from that statement. I'd like to see the Italian words they translated that from too. Translations can be quite treacherous.

When I saw it announced that Magnussen was running two days in the third test, I said this on Twitter: interesting they aren't running JB all four days. It's either an ideal chance to get KM a little time in the 2015 car... or maybe there is more to it all than we know, and FA's participation at Melbourne is perhaps questionable?

Hopefully it isn't the case, and they did just see it as an opportunity to get Magnussen some time in the 2015 car. But the stuff about Alonso suffering amnesia, and the way stuff keeps coming out... it is still a little concerning.

There are no facts other than Alonso (seemingly) suffered a relatively minor accident (for unknown reasons) and was hospitalised for a couple of days.

This is odd, which is why there's so much speculation.

We may (or may not) find out the reason for the accident, but as things stand little makes sense given the eye-witness reports.

Hopefully the FIA will discover the reason for the accident and Alonso will show up fit and well for Aus.

Really now?

All the symptoms are of a head injury, you know it wouldn't hurt for Alonso not to drive for a month to make sure he's ok, the McLaren is not going to win any races anytime soon, will it even finish a race?

For those who can't understand Spanish, they're saying: "Hey something's happened to Alonso, they're waking him up, it wasn't normal what he did, he went off very weirdly.

Something's happened to him, they were calling him as if he couldn't wake up".

that all changes when a marshall arives at the car - because he is grounded and would represent a way for the current to escape that cage it is in (the car, basically) ... with the driver in the car it is a bit like bird sitting on the power-lines...

Something seems off with all this.

I don't understand how a man and team that prides themselves on their ability to think so well manage to trip over their own feet so much.

It seems like Big Ron might have been better off not having his press conference. So Alonso has no concussion? Didn't Eric just recently tell us days ago he did? He was unconscious, yet he has no concussion? His recovery and all that is very normal following such an accident but there seems to be a lot of strange conflicting information coming out.

At the same time there is also still a very big question mark of why he crashed. The wind is possible and he could have just ran wide on the astroturf and lost it and this is probably what happenned. But at the same time Vettel said he just seemed to turn right in to the wall. Ron also claimed McLaren couldn't be completely sure Fernando had full consciousness before the crash and he even claimed Jenson said the telemetry looked strange.

It looks like Alonso with enough rest will be fine. But if he did black out that could be dangerous to everyone including obviously himself. We may never know.

on that video it appears they are rubbing his chest, if I am not mistaken this creates a lot of discomfort to the point of waking somebody up or create a reflex movement.

If he indeed was out before the crash, why did he passed out? The more time passes without a clear cause of the crash, the more worrisome it gets, if there is something wrong with the man, can we see a possible early retirement from the sport? Some say he has some memory problems, is he fit to drive? Will he be fit to drive?

From Autosport:
Dennis said the doctors were being "cautious" because of the fact Alonso experienced the symptoms of concussion while being "devoid of all injuries" when examined medically.
i don't know why that could happen... do we have a doctor here? MEDIC!!!! WE NEED A MEEDIIIIC!!!

edit: tried to do some research... but as i said, i'm neither a doctor nor a medical student, so... apparently, medically speaking, a concussion is the lightest form of craniocerebral injury and is defined by damaged brain-tissue... the damage occurs when the brain hits the skull - like always with this type of injuries... examination takes place by asking the patient questions and assessing his reactions on a scale... looking at the scale and what we know about alonso, his assessment must have been rather low, which will lead to a CT-scan... but it seems like there hasn't been found any damage on the CT-scan so they are left at a weird state... the definition of brain-damage (even if only a temporarily one) isn't met, but he showed a lot of symptoms that are typical for a concussion... that might also be the reason as to why he had to stay in hospital longer than expected - they probably ran the scans a couple of times to make sure they didn't miss anything... it might very well also be the reason as to why there is no clear message whether he will drive in oz or not...

I wonder if Ron has got his facts wrong. He is basing Fernando having no injury because nothing showed up on the scans. I'm not an expert but its my understanding a CT scan will not necessarily pick up a concussion.

I get the feeling that Ron with the teams integrity being questioned has come out blazing in defence of that and has maybe not got all his facts right in the process. Personally I'm just about absolutely sure Alonso was concussed in the crash. He has pretty much all the symptoms of it and his recovery is also very normal. It would not be abnormal to have to miss the first race.

The only thing would be if he was unconscious before the accident which is quite serious then. I don't buy that McLaren can't tell if something is wrong. The telemetry has to give them an idea. They can measure a lot of things with rear wheels slipping, steering traces and more. For example if Fernando ran wide and lost rear traction surely he will have attempted to correct it with opposite lock.

Alonso probably just dropped it but nevertheless the incident seems strange.

According to Gary Hartstein, the simple fact he was unconscious means he suffered concussion and Ron Dennis is talking out of his bottom: https://twitter.com/former_f1doc

Unless of course, his unconsciousness began before the impact.

This simulation is completely innacurate, because that photographer said he didnt lose control of the car due to the backend sliding off. He just went turned the car to the right.

I'm thinking he was either blacking out or being electrocuted, i can't think of anything else. He was trying to park the car on the right but he couldnt stop properly for whatever reason and he crashed into the wall.

The wind theory is really.... strange... maybe it COULD be true, but I find it hard to believe.

:thumbup:
While it must have been a great effort, the other inaccuracy is that the car was moving for 15 seconds after the initial impact. The movement in this simulation ends around 6-7 seconds.

Electrocution doesn't seem likely for me, but from the beginning I've been thinking (based on Vettel's and that reporter's comments) that he was blacking out or passing out or something, and stomped the brakes while he still could.

Irrespective of what the team, team manager or driver wants, the FIA "SHOULD" not allow Alonso to drive again until they are satisfied that there is an engineering or medical explanation.

This is basic "duty of care".

However, we all know how ethical the FIA are.

I don't necessarily agree. If he is cleared for driving by the doctors, he should be able to drive. There is still something like the professional secrecy in medical professions. Alonso has his rights too.
Go Vandoorne :( - Verstappen - Vettel!
