Garcia declared unfit for Saturday and Sunday in Austin

The Spaniard crashed at the end of FP1 at Turn 10 but was declared fit for FP2 after a check-up in the medical centre. After not feeling 100% after FP2, Garcia visited the medical centre again where an x-ray revealed no injuries. However, to rule out any type of injury, Garcia was transferred to Dell Seton Medical Center hospital in Austin for further examination.
