Problems in Alonso's McLaren and last in the tests

The Spanish driver finished the first part of the test with 29 laps and the worst time of the participants after a problem with the software of his orange car.


It was twelve o'clock in the fourth Spanish hour when Fernando Alonso finally accelerated his McLaren Indy 500 with the intention of going out on track. But a few minutes later he was towed without having had the opportunity to take a single round of the Indianapolis oval. Youth problems. This is what he is usually called. What happened is that shortly after the mechanics had the car almost completely open and trying to fix the problem. First it looked like an empty battery, then what they did was replace all the software of the orange car. In any case it did not start well the second adventure of the Asturian in Indianapolis after a few weeks ago in Texas put on track this car for the first time. The McLaren has been manufactured in Woking, but with the help of Carlin and his factory in Florida, but at the moment it is not giving the desired result, let's hope it is just that, problems of youth.

Since what is true is that still is much work if you want to be among the best in the next edition of the 500 Miles and is finally Alonso finished the test, which ended before the rain, with 29 laps and the worst time of the participants, far from the Herta that was the faster among non-regulars, followed by Castroneves and the other Spanish, Oriol Serviá. Recall also that this test is the return to the Indy of Catalan, now with the team Schmidt Peterson.

The day, however, was not easy in Indianapolis because the rain complicated everything in this collective test. Alonso was the first of the non-regulars in Indy Car, but he did it almost four hours later than expected by the rain and then had to spend almost another hour until he returned to the track after overcoming the problem.

Antes , in the test of the veterans the fastest in the oval was Takuma Sato, winner in 2017, with Ed Carpenter, second and Spencer Pigot third.
