It is said that he will be taken to Bern, where there is a specialist unit to deal with such injuries.

Alonso, who helped Toyota win the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race in 2018 and 2019, is set to make a full-time return to F1 after he signed for Alpine – previously known as Renault – for the 2021 campaign.

The Spaniard claimed both his F1 titles with the same team in 2005 and 2006 and this will be his third stint with the constructor.
