Fernando Alonso has left hospital after recovering from a concussion suffered during the penultimate testing session on 22 February ahead of the new Formula 1 season, McLaren have confirmed.

The Spanish driver has returned home to his family for rest and recuperation, and will miss the final pre-season testing session in Barcelona starting on 26 February.

Alonso, the two-time world champion, was airlifted to hospital after crashing into a wall during the test drive after a few laps.

"Following his testing accident at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya last Sunday, we are pleased to confirm that Fernando Alonso has now left hospital," a team statement read. "He has returned to his family's home in Spain for further rest and recuperation.

"As a result, he will sit out this week's final winter test, at which he was due to share driving duties with Jenson Button. Kevin Magnussen, McLaren-Honda's test and reserve driver, will replace him.

"Jenson will be testing the McLaren-Honda car tomorrow [26 February] and the team will confirm the full day-to-day running order in due course."
