Fernando Alonso’s quest to win the Triple Crown of Motorsport (Monaco, Indy and Le Mans) continues, and we couldn’t love it more. Alonso confirmed to the World Endurance Championship today that he was going to test out the Toyota Ts050 LMP1 tomorrow, like he might be gunning for a Le Mans seat or something.
Two-time Formula One world champ and one-time (and hopefully more-times) Indianapolis 500 participant Fernando Alonso really wants to keep going with his quest to win the Triple Crown of Motorsport. One report suggests that he may try his hand at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with Toyota’s LMP1 team.
Formula One star Fernando Alonso is probably long accustomed to being the center of attention, but there’s a new star in his life that’s stealing some of the shine: a tiny cat. But for a long, tormenting two days after he shared a photo of the little angel, we did not know its name.
Fernando Alonso will run the 2018 Rolex 24 at Daytona with McLaren boss Zak Brown’s United Autosports team, according to a Racer report. Alonso, whose Formula One season with McLaren won’t start until the end of March, doesn’t have a deal to race Le Mans but would be allowed to by McLaren.
McLaren finally tossed its partnership with Honda aside, meaning the team will have a new, different, hopefully slightly better Renault power unit for the 2018 race season. But the McLaren team still has to ride out (however much it can of) the 2017 season with a Honda power unit, which totally blows.
The best thing about McLaren’s Formula One team right now is that they want to let their drivers drive in other series. We had to ask McLaren Technology Group Executive Director and real-life American in F1 Zak Brown if Fernando Alonso might drive at the 24 Hours of Daytona. “Stay tuned,” he told us.
McLaren confirmed today that Fernando Alonso will be staying with the Formula One team for next year alongside Stoffel Vandoorne, F1 announced. Thankfully, since McLaren will run Renault power units next year, they might actually have a competitive car.
Here’s something you probably didn’t know: The McLaren-Honda Formula One team isn’t great these days. Wild, right? The team’s two-time champ, Fernando Alonso, has threatened to leave all year in the same vein as a teenager saying they’ll never talk to you again, and he’s still not sure if he’ll stay around.
I get excited for the mail every day, but that’s probably because I work from home, live in a retirement neighborhood and am secretly 87-years-old. But getting something delivered by Formula One driver and professional sad man Fernando Alonso would be slightly more exciting than the daily mail truck.
McLaren may have finally found a way out of its bum Formula One engine deal with Honda, but it’s probably coming at the expense of Toro Rosso, according to multiple reports. Toro Rosso and McLaren will swap engine suppliers, but Toro Rosso’s best driver Carlos Sainz Jr. will be moving to Renault as a result.
McLaren Formula One sad boy Fernando Alonso made a minor tweak to his Twitter profile today that caught the eye of everyone hoping he’ll switch teams and have a more reliable car for 2018. He swapped the top photo from a shot of historic McLarens to a shot of his own karting facility. What does it MEAN?
Formula One is back! One of the hottest silly season rumors to come out of F1's first weekend back racing is that Williams might offer bad luck man Fernando Alonso a seat, reports Auto Motor und Sport. Williams! A team with a functional engine! Holy crap, please let this be true.
Fernando Alonso isn’t quite living his best life, but he did have his best finish of the season so far at today’s Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix, clinching the fastest lap of the race and embracing his iconic meme.
We all know about Fernando Alonso’s abysmal luck this year, with a trail of broken engines left wherever he seems to race. Max Verstappen is certainly Alonso’s bad luck buddy, as he’s retired five times in the past seven races. Verstappen and Alonso both got taken out at the first turn today at the Austrian Grand…
McLaren-Honda’s Formula One team is bad, and it’s not because of the drivers. It’s because the team’s car tends to break and its engine tends to fail. But not to worry, friends and fans of Fernando Alonso—reports are that Honda will bring a slightly less miserable engine to the upcoming Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
As part of the makeover Liberty Media is giving Formula One in its first year of ownership, the company recently said it wants to majorly expand the schedule. Champions Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton don’t seem to like that much, agreeing that they’d consider leaving if the number of races got too high.
Professional McLaren Formula One sad man Fernando Alonso told Autosport that McLaren needs to start winning races by September for him to stay. Given that it’s more likely for space cats to discover unobtanium on Saturn by then, I think this is a nice way of telling everyone that he’s available for hire early on in…
Two-time Formula One champion Fernando Alonso didn’t miss racing in the F1 Monaco Grand Prix he skipped for the Indianapolis 500, and it doesn’t sound like people from his home country did either. The reported Spanish television audience for the Indy 500 was more than double that of Monaco on Sunday.
