Fernando Alonso may be making the move to IndyCar after all. Honda has confirmed that the Formula One driver will be making doing a road course test soon.

Alonso, along with McLaren, announced that he would leave Formula One after the season. Almost immediately, he suggested maybe he would move to IndyCar for next season.

He has agreed to a road course test in an IndyCar that’s owned by Andretti Autosport and Honda. He previously worked with Andretti Autosport during the 2017 Indianapolis 500 in a one-off deal.

There has been rumors that he may join the Harding Racing team. That team has set up shot right across the street from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Andretti, if this happens, would have to find a way to keep his obligations to Honda, as well as keeping an alliance with the Harding Racing team going. In addition, to juggling his own team’s needs.

“Fernando Alonso is one of the premier racing drivers of this generation, and we very much enjoyed working with him at the 2017 Indianapolis 500,” Honda Racing president Art St. Cyr said. “He has shown that he can be very competitive right off the bat, and it would be great for IndyCar if he were to decide to drive here full-time after his F1 career.

“Having Alonso as a driver would be an obvious benefit for any team or manufacturer.”

Alonso does not have a win this season. His best finish of the season came in the season-opener in Melbourne, Australia.
