NTT IndyCar Series team Andretti Autosport will announce Fernando Alonso as part of their 2020 Indianapolis 500 programme according to Spanish newspaper AS.
Paddock Eye understands that now Fernando Alonso is a free agent having ended his relationship with McLaren earlier this month that he will join Andretti Autosport alongside Ryan Hunter Reay, Alexander Rossi, Zach Veach, Marco Andretti, Colton Herta and the Andretti Technologies backed Jack Harvey for Meyer Shank Racing for the month of May.
Alonso who failed to qualify for the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 with McLaren last year is understood to be keen to try other events on the NTT IndyCar Series calendar.
It is unclear where the extra races may be but it will become clearer when the announcement is made.
Fernando Alonso made his Indianapolis 500 debut at the 2017 Indianapolis 500 in a McLaren Andretti Honda.
