Formula 1 Driver Fernando Alonso Forgets 20 Years After Crash

share on:

Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso suffered a concussion at the Circuit de Catalunya when he lost control and hit a wall.

According to Spanish daily El Pais, he woke up in hospital thinking it was 1995.

Asked who he was, what his job was, and what he hoped to do with his life, Alonso reportedly replied: “I’m Fernando, I drive go-karts and I want to be a Formula One driver.”

Alonso apparently could not remember making his F1 debut with Minardi in 2001, or either of his world championships in 2005 and 2006.

Alonso will miss the season-opening Australian Grand Prix on March 15 on doctors’ orders.
