One of the owners of McLaren’s young OGA Mansour believes that Fernando Alonso is not to persuade to extend the contract with the team from Woking, if you do not provide him the opportunity to participate in the Indy 500.
Two-time world champion, whose contract with McLaren expires this year, refused to participate in the Grand Prix of Monaco for the famous race “Indie 500”.
“Fernando is a great driver, who have suffered for two years – honestly said young OGA in an interview with the magazine Auto Hebdo. – All riders are hungry for wins, but the desire Fernando more than others. He wants to become the owner of the Triple crown of Motorsport. I then immediately told him that he was mad, because he never played on the oval and on the road in Indianapolis.
Then we talked with Juan Pablo [Montoya, a two-time winner of the Indy 500 and former racer McLaren]. The Colombian assured us that there is no need for concern, and Fernando quickly adapts.
Besides, Alonso wants to win at Le Mans. I would like the return of McLaren at Le Mans, but only in the category in GT. Fernando also interested in the likely LMP1.
It would be nice to be the works team and to have customers. Sooner or later we will join Porsche and Ferrari, but until this question is seriously discussed. Right now, our priority is to get a good engine in F1″.
