Fernando Alonso said that he is retiring from Formula One after this season. One has to guess that with this announcement, there is another domino to fall.
That other domino may actually be a move to IndyCar for the 2019 season. He has previously raced in IndyCar in 2017.
The 36-year-old driver drove an IndyCar, sponsored by McLaren’s World Fastest Gamer/AutoNation, for McLaren-Honda-Andretti at the prestigious Indianapolis 500. After starting fifth of the 33-car field, he completed 179 laps, before suffering engine problems.
He led 27 laps and picked up 47 points in the race.
Alonso has raced in Formula One for the past 17 seasons. He began as a 19-year-old in 2001 and is 303 races into his career.
He has 32 career wins. However, he has not won a Formula One race since 2013 when he won two races that season.
He also has 97 career podiums and 22 career poles. He has raced in 16,476 laps in his Formula One career and led 1,764 laps.
Alonso has an average start of 8.3 and his average finish is 8.0.
This season, he has not finished better than fifth. Unfortunately, for the McLaren F1 team, he finished fifth in the season-opener in Melbourne, Australia.
That’s his only Top 5 finish of the season. He is coming off of an eighth-place finish at Hungaroring.
