The McLaren Racing NTT IndyCar Series team say that they hope to get Fernando Alonso’s primary No.66 Chevrolet Dallara back out on track at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Tuesday before the action ends at 6PM.
The double Formula One world champion suffered understeer heading into Turn 3 and crashed heavily bringing out the red flag.
The Spaniard who was checked and cleared by the NTT IndyCar Series medic team said afterwards:
It was understeer on the car, and even if I lifted the throttle on the entry of the corner, it was not enough, and I lost completely the front aero. “The wall came too close and too quickly. Unfortunately, it happened today. We will lose a little bit of running time again. I’m sorry for the team, but we will learn and hopefully we will come back stronger tomorrow.”
Alonso’s fastest speed so far today is a 225.433MPH.
