He has no headaches, no problems with it - so there is no threat of serious consequences. But if you have unexplained loss of consciousness, it is logical to prohibit the pilot to participate in races three to four weeks.So hard to believe in the statement that Fernando has fully recovered, but will not participate in the race because of the risk of repeated concussions".
