Fernando Alonso has been declared “provisionally fit” to take part in this weekend’s Chinese Grand Prix.
The McLaren driver, who broke a rib in a crash in last month’s Australian Grand Prix, faces further tests before being given the full go-ahead.
The Spanish two-time champion, 34, will be given a second check-up after taking part in first practice on Friday.
