McLaren Honda have confirmed that following a medical assessment by the FIA on Thursday ahead of the Bahrain Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso will miss this weekend’s race as he is suffering from lung and rib injuries following his terrible crash during the Australian Grand Prix two weeks ago.

The news means that McLaren Honda Test and Reserve driver Stoffel Vandoorne will sub for Alonso this weekend. The Woking based outfit confirmed that the Belgian will be Bahrain ready for Free Practice on Friday.
