Alonso to miss Bahrain GP

Alonso has been ruled out of racing on medical grounds following his crash at Melbourne.

Stoffel Vandoorner will sub.

Deja vu for Alonso after missing the Aussie GP last year due to injury

This should be a career defining race for Vandoorne.

It's great to see the fantastic Stoffel Vandoorne get his chance, because I was disappointed he didn't get to make the step up this year. I hope he gets a fair shake and chance to show what he can do, because it could keep him in the frame for future Formula 1. This will be one of the things to follow.

Not good for Fernando of course, but it's a relief to see that he only sustained a fractured rib (and fractured seat I read) in that.

I'm not known for my love of the Spaniard but it's a shame he's injured. Mind you, fractured ribs and a pneumothorax is a relatively light price to pay for such a huge accident - it could have been a hell of a lot worse. Big opportunity for Vandoorne to prove himself against Button.

Very scared when I read air was found in his chest cavity. Usually that's really bad news. Surprised he didn't suffer a fully collapsed lung.

Alonso might not be racing but he was mixing it up with Herbert who apparently had suggested that the Spaniard was lacking in motivation and should retire.

On the subject of broken ribs I seem to remember Niki Lauda taking part in the 1976 Spanish GP with more serious damage to his ribs and finishing second.

But they were different times.

Although I don't recall that, you must bear in mind that those were not the litigious times that we live in now. I am not even sure whether the FIA had it's own medical delegate back then; it is more likely that it would have been a local doctor that would have been in attendance, and they certainly didn't have all the most up-to-date medical equipment that today's F1 travel around the world with. Their medical centre would put some mid-size hospitals to shame, with much of the credit going to Sid Watkins and Gary Hartstein.

p.s. Just to add that it is not necessarily the fractured ribs that are the important factor, it is which ribs are affected. It would seem as though Alonso's ribs gave in around the lungs, and considering the huge pressure his chest would be under during breaking and cornering, it might have been considered to be not worth the risk of further damage to his lungs.

Off topic, but credit for the medical improvements should also go to the Bernie.

True. It is easy, with his antics currently, to forget or overlook all the things that he has done that has benefitted F1.

Glad to see that the FIA wasn't bullied by Ron Dennis in his attempt to get Alonso to drive this weekend, what was he thinking, the whole point of official doctors is to stop teams and or drivers, trying to use their own medical opinion to put a driver back in the car when the FIA deems it unsafe.

Quite rightly, the FIA's doctors opinion should be final.

Makes sense to have a set of FIA doctors who have the final say...but surely their job is to examine and be available for the drivers medical needs.

I'm not sure I understand their rational for not allowing another scan/examination on Saturday before quali even if it was just to humour their patient.

Good on Mr Alonso to confront the people who are hanging effluent on him!
