TWO-TIME world champion Fernando Alonso escaped without injury after a heavy crash on the final day of pre-season testing at the Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona yesterday.

An ambulance was dispatched after the McLaren driver hit the wall on the exit of the 150mph turn three, before being airlifted to hospital. McLaren confirmed scan results showed the driver was concussed but uninjured, and was set to remain in hospital overnight as a precaution.
