McLaren Honda Andretti driver Fernando Alonso in the No.29 Honda had a really strong day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during day 3 of practice for the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil.
The double Formula One world champion completed 39 laps ending the day in fourth place and speaking following his day in the car, Alonso commented by saying:
It was tricky (so) very little running for the big guys. But for me any condition is a good lesson. Today was about that, a lesson about how to drive with strong winds and how to set up the car corner to corner. Everything was according to plan. The team, I think, used those runs also to test something on the back (end), the engine, for tuning, and something like that, so I think it was a productive day as well.
