Top F1 pilot Fernando Alonso woke up thinking it was 1995, following horror smash at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, last month.

"I'm Fernando, I'm in karts and want to become Formula 1 driver," he told doctors who asked him who he was and what he remembered about the near fatal crash.

Spanish media reports that the driver remembered nothing about the crash or his successful career.

He has been now given a clean bill of health, although medics are still concerned about the possibility of "second-impact syndrome".

Alonso spent three nights in hospital after his horror smash on February 22nd.
