Concerns over ex-F1 driver Jaime Alguersuari's health after Formula E's Moscow ePrix are behind his absence from this weekend's London finale.
In a statement released on social media, the Virgin Racing driver says he fainted after the June 6 race, and while his health is "safe" following initial tests, his racing licence has been suspended by the FIA until further tests are conducted.
He will be replaced at the Battersea Park double-header by Manor F1 reserve driver Fabio Leimer.
ALGUERSUARI'S STATEMENT IN FULL:
On June 6th, after the Moscow ePrix I suffered a faint as a result of dehydration and extreme exhaustion during the race.
As a consequence of this faint I had some medical tests done, with successful results, and at the moment my license is temporarily suspended until the FIA makes sure that I'm fully able to carry on with my sporting career.
My health is safe and I'm in shape, and I'm absolutely convinced I can compete this weekend, but for security reasons we need to delve into medical research.
For this reason, together with Virgin Racing, the FIA and the doctors we've decided not to take part in the London ePrix this weekend.
It's a shame because it will be the last ePrix of the season and I wanted to race in front of our fans, but we must be respectful with the FIA's procedures.
I want to wish all the luck to my team Virgin Racing in the last ePrix of the 2014/15 Formula E season.
