Former teammate Fernando Alonso at Ferrari Felipe Massa has stated that it will monitor the UPS and downs of the legendary race “500 miles of Indianapolis” which will support two-time world champion.
“I think it will be great. I will watch the race and support him, – said the Brazilian. – Would be great if he will participate successfully in other racing categories.
I think that the “Indie 500” – a serious race. This is a new experience for Alonso, because he will compete on the track, where never spoken.
Yes, in these races Fernando is a newcomer. He will need to learn everything from scratch. But it’s still great that he will act there. I’ll be watching him.”
Felipe also said that as a child he was watching IndyCar races.
“When I was a kid, I often watched IndyCar than F1 – remembered Mass. – I watched every race and dreamed of becoming a pilot IndyCar, but I managed to get into F1.
I think if I decided to go to IndyCar now, it would have led to large disagreements with his wife, father, mother and son.
Honestly, I didn’t think about the transition in this championship. I had intended to stay in Europe and compete here. This is not to say that I don’t like IndyCar, just a transition in this series was not part of my plan”.
