Widely considered to be one of the best drivers on the planet, Fernando Alonso is reportedly close to signing a deal with Andretti Autosport so that he can give the Indianapolis 500 a third attempt.
Alonso, who is currently contesting the grueling Dakar Rally, is a former Formula One World champion. In his previous two races at Indy, he has had little luck. His engine failed in the 2017 version when he had a chance to win and in 2019, he didn’t even qualify for the official event. Let’s hope he gets a better go of it this time, as it would be a fantastic story to behold regardless of him winning or not.
