No deadline for Alonso's crash probe

MELBOURNE, Australia - Formula 1's race director, Charlie Whiting, says the sport's governing body has no deadline to complete its investigation into the cause-and-effects of Fernando Alonso's crash.

Alonso went into the wall at the Catalunya track in Spain in February 2015 and will miss Sunday's (March 15) season-opening race in Australia as a result.

Alonso's McLaren team said the Spaniard suffered concussion and will skip the Australian Grand Prix to prevent the risk of serious secondary concussion in Melbourne.


Alonso's hospital treatment, despite the apparently minor impact, prompted speculation that there was more to the incident than just concussion, with concerns he may have suffered an electrical shock due to a malfunction of the new Honda hybrid engine.

Whiting said on Thursday (March 13 2015) that  the investigation has questioned the team and hospital staff but added: "We can't put a time frame on it."
