Alonso tweeted yesterday: “I wake up at dawn on one of the saddest days. Shattered. From here, a huge hug to Gonzalo’s family and all karting.”
Regarded as one of the best drivers ever, the two-time world champion opened his museum and karting track in Asturias in 2013 a way to make F1 more accessible to fans.
The current McLaren-Honda rider, 35, is sitting out next month’s F1 showpiece race in Monaco to make his debut in the prestigious American race the Indy 500.
This is in a bid to do racing’s “triple crown” – the Monaco GP, the Le Mans 24 hour race and the Indy 500.
