Bad start for Brivio’s adventure in Alpine F1: Alonso’s bike accident

Fernando was hit by a car while training in Lugano. He’s conscious, may have a fractured jaw, and is waiting for further tests.


Davide Brivio’s adventure in Formula 1 didn’t start out great, since the Alpine F1’s top driver was hit by a car while training on a bicycle  last night. We’re obviously talking about the two-time world champion, Fernando Alonso. As of now, the news is not that worrisome. He seems to have fractured his jaw, but he was still taken to the hospital in Bern to undergo further tests.

The team also issued an official statement, explaining the incident in detail, as well as his condition.

Alpine F1 can confirm that Fernando Alonso was involved in a car accident while cycling in Switzerland. Fernando is conscious and feeling well but is waiting for further tests tomorrow morning. Alpine F1 will make no further statement at this time. Further updates will be provided tomorrow.

The risk is obviously that Alonso will have to undergo surgery, which could jeopardize his participation in the first GPs of the 2021 season. It’s certainly not the beginning that Brivio dreamed of for his F1 adventure, but we know that he’s usually cool and collected when facing even complex situations like this one.
