Alonso targets to return during the Malaysian Grand Prix

Two-time Formula One (F1) world champion Fernando Alonso is set to take on McLaren's race simulator as he prepares to make his return at the Sepang Circuit for the Malaysian Grand Prix next weekend.

A tweet from McLaren has confirmed that Alonso had returned to work at the team's Woking base and is all set to be in the team's race simulator.

In addition, Alonso has resumed fitness training last week. The McLaren-Honda driver even shared a photo of himself through his Facebook page accompanied by the hashtag “#CountdownMalaysia.”

The Spaniard missed the opening race of the 2015 F1 season after crashing his McLaren-Honda car during the final day of pre-season testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
