Fernando Alonso suffers a run over with the bicycle in Switzerland
As reported by La Gazzetta, the Spanish rider has been hit by a car on a road near the town of Lugano, the place of residence of the Asturian, who regularly practices cycling to train. The Italian newspaper has announced that the Spanish rider has suffered injuries to the face, but that these are not as serious as it seemed in the first moments. This is what Lorenzo Pastuglia has said, who signed the first information on the accident.
It has also been reported that the incident has been in the Prefassona area, in via La Santa - near a Lidl supermarket - in the city of Lugano.
The Spanish has affected the jaw area and it will be necessary to do a small reconstruction, according to the Spanish delegation of the American web portal Motorsport.com. The cited source assures that Alonso spoke without undue difficulty.
In parallel information, the Swiss media CDT has indicated that Alonso has been hospitalized with a cut on his lip and that on impact, the Spanish pilot has lost two teeth.
Alonso is immersed in his preparation to return to Formula 1 with the help of the Alpine team, which a few hours ago published a video with the ignition of the engine of his car for 2021. The pre-season tests will take place on 12, 13 and March 14 at the Sakhir circuit in Bahrain, and two weeks later the first race of the season will be held on the same stage.
