Indy 500 2017 Odds: Fernando Alonso ‘Ready’ For New Challenge

Formula One superstar Fernando Alonso has reassured the motorsport community he is “ready” for the challenge of the Indianapolis 500 as he prepares to take on one of the greatest challenges known to the racing world.

Alonso will miss this year’s Monaco Grand Prix so that he can take part in the Indy 500, part of the IndyCar Series, but the joint-favourite has insisted first place is anyone’s for the taking:

“Anyone can win the Indy 500 of the 33 drivers because it is an unpredictable race. You cannot plan in advance. You need to keep improvising. I know I will lack experience in critical moments.”

The 35-year-old is far from the first F1 figure to try his hand at IndyCar racing, with fellow McLaren alumnus Juan Pablo Montoya also in the field, and Alonso is expecting a climactic finish:

“You have to stay calm, be ready for the last one-third of the race. That is where it comes.”
