Re: Fernando Alonso to race for McLaren at the 2019 Indy 500

I'm not sure because Alonso apparently doesn't want to do the full series, he doesn't like the cars. Yeah that's what the Spanish press close to him is saying, he didn't enjoy the car in a normal circuit plus doing so many races away from Europe. Honestly he should suck it and do it.
