Mar.26 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Fernando Alonso has been declared fit to return to the cockpit of his McLaren-Honda this weekend.

The Spaniard had already been given the green light prior to travelling to Malaysia this week by a panel of FIA-nominated doctors at Cambridge university.

But he also had to satisfy FIA medical delegate Jean-Charles Piette on Thursday, as well as Sepang’s resident doctor.

The FIA announced that Alonso duly passed all the “mandatory fitness tests” on Thursday.

McLaren confirmed the news that its star driver is “fit to race”.
