McLaren Racing’s Fernando Alonso in the No.66 Chevrolet was happy with how his Fast Friday went ahead of qualifying for the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.
The Spaniard set a fastest no tow speed of 229.328MPH and speaking following the day’s action he said:
It was a positive day for us, and we were able to put the car on track and try different directions on the setup and learn a little bit about the track and the day. Obviously, the boost was up today, so the speeds were higher, and it was more a qually (qualifying) preparation than race setups. But we had a lot of new tires from the last couple of days. So, we were able to do a lot of runs, and hopefully, that information will give us tomorrow a little bit of confidence into qualifying.”
