Фернандо Алонсо: Рон Деннис не отпустил бы меня на "500 миль Индианаполиса"

Fernando Alonso believes that wouldn’t have had the opportunity to speak in the “500 miles of Indianapolis”, if McLaren continued to be managed by Ron Dennis, not Zac brown.

“I think not, – quotes Alonso AUTOSPORT. – Zach thinks broader categories than the other team managers, with whom I have ever worked with.

He sees Motorsport otherwise knows that the McLaren is not only the Formula 1. He is a true racer, so it’s great that he joined the team last year.”

The Spaniard admitted that the lack of speed and reliability of the machine McLaren-Honda helped him make the decision.

“If the car was competitive and we struggled in the championship, we would be unable to afford the loss of 25 points, he said. – It would be different if we were competitive.”

Alonso does not hide that wants to win the “Triple crown of Motorsport”. The Spaniard has twice won the Monaco Grand Prix, and now preparing to debut in the “500 miles of Indianapolis”. The rumors about the possible participation of two-time world champion of Formula 1 in the “24 hours of Le Mans” first appeared a couple of years ago, and he recognizes that this option in 2017, was also.

“Being American, Zach insisted on, “Indy 500” and the Frenchman Eric [boullier] – Le Mans – said Alonso. – Thanks to the partnership of McLaren and Honda variant of the “Indianapolis 500” looked very attractive.

At Le Mans I will act when the opportunity arises. Don’t know if it will happen in the coming years. Now my priority is Formula 1. If you manage to combine participation in two Championships, as it is now, then try. Otherwise, I’ll focus on F1,” added Fernando.
