One of the most accomplished drivers in the world is heading to Indianapolis this May:
Alonso won back-to-back World Championships in F-1 in 2005 and 2006, breaking up Michael Schumacher's five-peat. The 35-year old Spaniard has thirteen career top-ten points finishes in Formula One, with three runner-up finishes - one as recently as 2013 - to go along with his two titles. He has struggled bit of late, finishing just 17th and 10th in points in his last two full seasons.
He will be part of the Andretti Autosport team, which includes two recent Indy 500 winners in Alexander Rossi (2016) and Ryan Hunter-Reay (2014). It is the first time a McLaren driver will participate in the 500 in nearly forty years (1979).
