    The plot thickens...

    Did a 600 watt shock cause Alonso’s testing accident? | Grand Prix 247

    Officially, a gust of wind blew Fernando Alonso’s McLaren off the Circuit de Catalunya on 22 February, resulting in his concussion that has sidelined him for the season opening Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.

    Unofficially, speculation and doubt are running wild with most recent;y Sky Italia, the F1 broadcaster, claims the Spanish driver has confided to close friends and family that he suffered a “major shock in his spine” before losing control of his McLaren-Honda and striking the Barcelona wall.

    The broadcaster made clear that Alonso did not say specifically that he was electrocuted, but the report adds weight to the theory that there is more than meets the eye to the controversial crash saga.

    Fabrizio Barbazza, an Italian who had a brief F1 career in the early 90s, is quoted by La Repubblica newspaper: “Fernando took a 600 watt hit with serious consequences. Difficulty focusing and temporary obstruction of the veins.”

    Vettel who was right behind Fernando when the accident happened did say that it looked odd.

    Good Lord. This does not sound like the short term amnesia that often characterizes a "normal" concussion.

    Although I can somewhat understand the team's reticence, I think that they should not have issued the rather unconditonal "o.k" that they did.

    It seems like he only temporarily forgot.

    Anyone with medical knowledge knows what that means?
