McLaren Honda’s Fernando Alonso will take centre stage in tomorrow’s Drivers Press Conference ahead of the Malaysian Grand Prix this weekend.
The Spaniard will start his first Grand Prix for McLaren Honda provided he passes a final medical carried out by the FIA medical delegation on Thursday. The double world champion suffered a concussion during testing in Barcelona last month.
Speaking about the accident earlier this week, Alonso stated that he felt that the steering of the MP4-30 felt heavy just before the accident at the Barcelona Circuit De Catalunya.
Alonso will be joined at the press conference by former Ferrari team mate Kimi Raikkonen. Two of the stars of the opening race will be at the press conference as the Sauber F1 Team’s Felipe Nasr and Scuderia Toro Rosso’s Carlos Sainz who both scored points on their Formula One debut in Australia two weeks ago.
Infiniti Red Bull Racing’s Daniil Kvyat and the Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 Team’s Nico Rosberg complete the driver line up for the press conference.
On Friday, Renault Sport F1’s Cyril Abiteboul and Infiniti Red Bull Racing’s Christian Horner will take centre stage in the Team Principal’s press conference following the comments made by Mr Abiteboul during the week.
The Lotus F1 Team’s Matthew Carter will also attend the press conference along with the Sahara Force India Formula One Team’s Robert Fernley, Pirelli Motorsport Director Paul Hembery and Scuderia Toro Rosso’s Franz Tost.
