The Spanish Fernando Alonso will not be present on Tuesday at the virtual presentation of the 2021 season of Alpine F1 (ex Renault), said the French team this Friday, two weeks after the accident suffered by the two-time champion of F1 while riding a bike in Switzerland.
Alonso, who returns to the top flight this year after two seasons of absence, wants to focus on "The essential preparation of the season", which is why he will not be in the appearance before the press. Alpine F1 also alluded to the current health crisis due to the pandemic and the restrictions in force.
The 39-year-old Asturian pilot had an upper jaw operation a fortnight ago. He spent 48 hours in hospital observation after his surgical intervention.
The team had reassured about his state of health and continues to affirm that Alonso will be present at the preseason tests in Bahrain from March 12 to 14 with his French partner Esteban Ocon.
