Alonso: "I thought about making the Indy season complete"

The Spaniard recognizes the American televisions in his test in Texas that that possibility existed and shows his confidence with getting ready to the Indy 500.


Even to live in the United States. This is Alonso with the country of stars and stripes. "For now I am happy in Europe, but we will see ... After 18 years in F1 I need time to be in my house See my family, my parents, I even think about the possibility of having my own family, I do not know what will happen in two or three years, nor what my life will be like, "he says when asked about Univisión about the possibility of taking up residence in that country. this year has a major challenge, winning the Indianapolis 500.1 "I feel more prepared, I already know the race, the environment that surrounds it, etc. I know things that the first time you run the 500 Miles you are supposed to spend energy.
