It has just been revealed that Renault F1 driver Fernando Alonso had a minor plane accident yesterday when his light aircraft clipped a building just before take-off (how..?) from Nairobi. Apparently there were no injuries, but just somewhat understandably nervous occupants following the incident.
The twice Formula 1 World Champion will now be making his way back to Europe later this week to commence testing on the 2009 car. Anything to transform me into a wreck I suppose – I’ll be facing the nightmare that is flying back to London tonight. Even now I’m already looking forward to going to bed.
