Alonso Will Find IndyCar Success Far More Difficult In The Future
Dale Coyne Racing with Vasser Sullivan driver Sebastian Bourdais believes Fernando Alonso will find it more difficult to be successful in the Verizon IndyCar Series in future due to the introduction of the new aerokit abd how competitive the sport is at the moment.
Bourdais who is competing in LeMans this weekend with Chip Ganassi Racing while Alonso competes for Toyota believes the Andretti Autosport who he drove for in the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil had a very strong car in 2017 and that Alonso nearly had it too easy.
Bourdais believes that Alonso who is weighing up his options in relation to 2019 would have found it more difficult to compete in the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil last month due to the challenging nature of the aero kit.
Paddock Eye understands that Fernando Alonso will move to the Verizon IndyCar Series in 2019 with McLaren with work continuing behind the scenes following meetings between the series and the team, Honda, Chevrolet and a few potential commercial partners.
