McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown has refused to rule out the possibility of running a second car in the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway next May.
It was confirmed on Saturday that Fernando Alonso will return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway next season to compete in the Indianapolis 500 for the second time.
Paddock Eye understands that McLaren’s trip to the US next season will be completely separate to the Formula One team with personnel being hired in from the US to run the IndyCar programme next season. McLaren have not yet revealed details about who will power the team at the Brickyard.
Fernando Alonso led the Indianapolis 500 last before he was forced to retire from the race following an engine failure.
It is unclear who the team would put in a second Dallara for the Indianapolis 500.
