Alonso refused that McLaren bought the Plaza de Serviá

According to the Associated Press agency, the Woking team thought about this possibility due to sponsorship issues and the pilot ruled it out: "I know what it costs to run.


After the fiasco of seeing the McLaren eliminated in the classification for the Indianapolis 500, there was one last possibility. To make Fernando Alonso run the mythical test of the Indianapolis Motor Speedwa and buy a seat from another driver who had managed to qualify. And so Zak Brown recognized in statements to the agency Associated Press: "Fernando did not do anything wrong, he needed to be in the race and we have many sponsors who wanted us in the race," said McLaren CEO.

Y with sponsors for half is when we thought about the solution: the seat of Oriol Serviá, classified on the track at position 19. And we thought about that square because Woking has agreements with Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, Serviá team for the Indy 500. And it was the own Fernando Alonso the one that discarded to enter the grill of that way, Brown confirmed to AP. And so Alonso opposed, always in the words of the CEO of McLaren: "He told us: 'I know what it costs to enter this race, it does not seem right to get another driver who has earned it because my team has bought the seat" .
