McLaren Renault’s Fernando Alonso says he is attracted to motorsports triple crown as it is so difficult to achieve.

The double Formula One champion has won two thirds of the triple crown having won the Monaco Grand Prix and the 2018 LeMans 24 Hours which he won earlier this summer with Toyota Gazoo Racing.

The Spaniard nearly won the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil last May after retiring from the race due to an engine failure.

Alonso is currently leading the World Endurance Championship driver standings heading into the next round of the championship, the Six Hours of Silverstone which takes place next month.
