Fernando Alonso: Indy 500 'horrible laps' await McLaren driver

Fernando Alonso

Fernando Alonso is preparing for the “most horrible” four laps of his career in qualifying for the Indianapolis 500.

The final day of practice is known as ‘Fast Friday’ because cars are put into qualifying trim, with reduced downforce and increased power from the engines.

Alonso said he has been told by coach Gil de Ferran to expect nerve-wracking laps as “the car is very on the limit”.
