Hard crash for Fernando Alonso in Indy 500 practice

Hard crash for Fernando Alonso in Indy 500 practice

Alonso, who is chasing the Indy 500 victory to secure motorsport's unofficial "triple crown" was 16th on the speed charts with a 225.433mph.

Alonso hit the Indianapolis Motor Speedway wall three times and heavily damaged the vehicle McLaren built in its England factory when he lost control exiting the third turn as he followed Graham Rahal.

Alonso climbed out of the auto on his own power.

The real blow for Alonso and his team is if his No. 66 Chevrolet suffered so much damage - and it really doesn't look good - that they'll have to turn to a backup vehicle for the 103rd Indy 500 on Sunday, May 26. "I lost it completely. The wall came too close and too quickly".

"Unfortunately, it happened today". He said he underestimated the grip exiting the corner in his McLaren. We will lose a little bit of running time again.

The No. 66 McLaren entry had electrical issues on day one of Indy 500 practice and was hoping to put his trouble in the past.

"We worked quite a lot on the vehicle and definitely now it's quite damaged, so I feel sorry for the team and for my mistake, hopefully tomorrow we're back on track and back stronger". "Sorry for the team, and we will come back stronger tomorrow".

That Indy 500 was Alonso's only race to date on an oval and his wreck Wednesday raised questions as to how crash-tested he is after a career spent racing primarily on road and street courses. He also competed in the 2017 race, but after a promising day as the race rookie led two dozen laps, he suffered engine failure and finished 24th.
