Alonso to miss Monaco GP to race at Indycar!

Utterly bizarre, Monaco has to be the one place they have a decent shot at some points!

That has to be the crappiest timing. He has a chance of decent points around MC

I swore that I said last year was the last time I watched the Commercials500 but this year I'll be watching with interest.

I reckon this'll be his first shot at Indycar win, he wants the triple crown. Next year drive with Porsche in LMS but possibility of LMS series race falling on same date as indycar again if he needs another shot...

"I'm immensely excited that I'll be racing in this year's Indy 500, with McLaren, Honda and Andretti Autosport," said Alonso.

My thoughts exactly. Nando is obsessed with how history will look at him.

Still very strange all this...

That will be interesting, of course, but the bottom line is that he really must be bored to death with the McLaren-Honda to miss a race with a solid chance for points.
Knowing Fernando's luck, J.B will drive the McLaren-Honda for this one G.P and score a podium.

Good for him. He wants to race in something different. Why not. Life is short and does anyone think for second Mclaren will be on the podium. I dont certainly not in a dry race. They simply dont have the pace. I hope he enjoy the 500.
