Alonso, half-board car to win Indianapolis

The Spaniard will take the Chevrolet engine, less powerful than the Honda and a McLaren made with the support of Carlin, a team that is far from the best.

Milagros and impossible. He has always believed in those words when talking about Fernando Alonso. This year you will have one more opportunity to show that you are at that level. And it is that in 2017 Fernando tried to win the 500 Miles of Indianapolis with Real Madrid, this time with Rayo Vallecano. With respect. With all the respect It will be difficult. Not impossible, but very complicated. In his first participation he tried with Andretti Honda this time with a McLaren built with a new team.

This Tuesday the Spaniard has climbed for the first time to the car with which he will try the feat in the Texas circuit, a similar oval to Indianapolis . We are talking about a McLaren car with Chevrolet engine, Dallara chassis and built in Woking but with the indispensable help of Carlin equipment. This being the case, Chevrolet does not have the most powerful engine of the IndyCar grid and Carlin is a team of mita from the table below.

As for the engine, although it is true that the current leader of the championship after three races, Josef Newgarden carries that engine after winning the first race, the other two have been for Honda with Herta and Sato and of the top ten classified only two to take the American propeller, the first and the ninth, and the rest ride the Japanese. And of the podiums of this course three Chevrolet and nine Honda.

As for Carlin, the team that has helped in several ways to McLaren to build the car making some parts in its headquarters in Florida and of course with much of the logistics , is a team that has had 111111 great successes in Europe in F2 for example, but in Indy this year its two pilots are 20º, the Mexican Patricio O'Ward and 22º Max Chilton, who was F1 driver.

It is true that McLaren has signed good technicians, to managers with experience in United States and that the preparation will be as exhaustive as possible, but it seems that this time, again, the biggest credit of the team is the pilot.
