Exclamation Breaking news! Fernando Alonso to run Indy 500

McLaren is so bad that they are letting him run Indy with Andretti Motorsport instead of being a back marker at Monaco.

Monaco could be one of their best races, the car seems to be handling well just down on power which really isn't that important compared to other tracks.

How funny would it be if Jensen comes back and wins in Fred's car lol

You're correct - it's really the woeful Honda engine in the brilliant McLaren chassis that continues to pull the team down.

He didn't tag the wall, made a bunch of smooth laps up to 221, took out 2 birds with one racecar and saw a little red mist.

Day 2 of open practice with 33 cars on track.

Alonso had the most laps of all drivers (117) with a top speed of 221 in traffic and 219 non-tow. Good enough only for 24th. I'm sure he was on a very structured schedule that included setup changes and working in turbulent air traffic.

Will Power was king of speed at 224/220.9. Happy Hour was very busy today!

That Alonso guy might be someone to keep an eye on he might be pretty good one day

The Chevy teams better hope Carpenter has something up his sleeve because the Penske cars lost the plot completely today.
