Indy 500: Fernando Alonso Ready To Improvise At 'Unpredictable' Race

Indy 500: Fernando Alonso Ready To Improvise At 'Unpredictable' Race

The more experience Alonso has collected on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the more confident he has become, Brown said.

"We have one superstar who has come from Formula One to race here, so it's a big deal", Kanaan said. So guys like Castroneves and Kanaan could end up like two-time Indy 500 victor Juan Pablo Montoya, who accepted a reduced role at Team Penske to make room for Josef Newgarden. But he thinks he's done everything possible to prepare for the race, and even spent time Thursday on a simulator. You need to keep improvising. "It's a very mixed-up grid at the moment which I'm sure will all change again on Saturday".

The Spaniard said he was determined to enjoy the event.

McLaren executive director Zak Brown said the outfit felt offering the branding without additional cost helped offset the loss of exposure sponsors have encountered through the team's struggles in F1.

"The Olympic Games and Super Bowl can not put 400,000 people in one place on one Sunday". "My worst start in row seven".

"We're going into the race with a fair amount of success on the ovals and Ed and I are looking for the same things in a vehicle, so we are all going in the same direction, but it all comes down to how the cards fall on race day", said Hildebrand, who saw a sure win in the 500 slip through his fingers in 2011 when he crashed in the last corner and limped a damaged race auto across the finish line for second.

"You respect the place, respect the speed". You respect your colleagues out there but, at the end of the day, when you are in your auto and close the visor, you would like to have one mile per hour more.

"It changes completely the behaviour of the vehicle". "Probably somehow feels similar to what you're feeling on the corners when you trim the auto, so some practice off the vehicle as well".

"I can't be frustrated or sad at the end of the race because the whole event has been a fantastic experience, so enjoy the moment, that's the target".

"But you just have to hit the override button", he added. Hopefully, with the day off and time with the engineers, I can find that confidence'.

"Taking the opportunity to overtake and to pass will be a hard decision to make".

And, of course, you can bet you'll probably be shown his wreck from 2011 a few hundred times as well.

That risk-taking was evident in qualifying last weekend when Hildebrand and his teammate Carpenter muscled their way into the top nine of 33 cars on to qualify for a shootout that nailed a pair of starting spots in the first two rows for Sunday's race. "That is where it comes".

"He's done awesome and to win the race he's going to be one of the guys you're going to have to beat", Dixon, a four-time IndyCar Series champion, said.

For all the success I had, for all the years I spent in IndyCar, I might want to come and say "This is my last year" like Tony (Stewart) did, like Jeff (Gordon) did, Dale is doing it.

"You can typically weed out a group of guys in any formula that are at the top and are slightly different than the rest and he is one of those guys".
