Alonso To Miss Monaco

Post by RaySinKa on Wed Apr 12, 2017 1:02 pm

McLaren driver Fernando Alonso will miss the Monaco Grand Prix in May so he can race in the Indianapolis 500.

The double world champion has the full approval and support of McLaren and engine partner Honda, who are having a difficult season in Formula 1.

Alonso, 35, will race for the Honda-powered Andretti team on 28 May, and the car will be branded a McLaren.

McLaren are yet to decide who will replace him in Monaco that weekend, but Jenson Button is a possibility.

The 2009 world champion has retired from F1 but is contracted to McLaren as an ambassador. It is not known whether the Briton would want to come back to drive an uncompetitive car.

He's got nothing to lose with an uncompetitive car and everything to gain! I think this is fantastic.

Just wondering if it really matters whether Alonso returns to F1 this season should the MCL32 continue to underperform  Neutral
I say it doesn't matter....especially if Alonso returns to Renault next season  Suspect

I believe Button will be more appreciative of his F1 seat  Cool

I clicked this post open because I just couldn't understand how Fernando can become Miss Monaco, but when opened I remembered what it was about, LOL.

Miss Monaco ( Laughing ) completed 36 laps on the oval, setting a best average speed of 221.635mp/h -- a 40.607s lap of the circuit. Alonso's mark put him narrowly above fellow Spaniard Oriol Servia, who clocked a 220.759mp/h.

PS:Unlike Formula One, practice sessions and qualifying at Indianapolis are dictated by top average speed.

Happy for Taku! Great race, and Dixon a very very lucky boy to escape injury.
