    Banning him would be a bad idea for Honda, IMO. If he wins, he would have to thank Honda, yadda, yadda, yadda, and the GP2 engine thing would be forgotten.

    I can perfectly understand Honda's position.
    The guy has been badmouthing them for more than 3 years; they are certainly not going to do him any favour now !
    Some individual are their worst enemy, and Alonso is a typical case.

    Oh come on, it's probably because of his long involvement to Toyota.

    Are 2 years considered a "long involvement" these days ?

    From what I read, there doesn't seem to be any seat available among the Chevrolet teams.

    This is a double win. Ass-lonso has screwed himself out of another job and hopefully this leaves a good seat open for Hinch at Andretti.

    Hinch seems like a genuinely nice guy, but his results haven't been that amazing. I'd much rather see the seat go to someone young that gets a chance to prove what they've got.

    you’d think he could pull the funds together to get a Chevy team to add a car just for the 500

    Alonso is such a slime , can't even stick to his guns, he now backtracks and says he didn't mean to bash Honda in the context in which it was taken . Looks good on him , his ego much have taken a big hit

    Yes, you would think that if he really wanted to race the Indy 500, he would swallow his pride and buy himself a seat.

    Alonso still has a ton of talent. I hope he finds a competitive Indy 500 ride.

    He probably still have, but that doesn't seem to help him finding a drive.

    I can't see a stampede of team owners to have him onboard, neither in F1, nor in Indycar.

    I wonder why ...
