Formula 1: Fernando Alonso Optimistic About Daytona 24
For Fernando Alonso to drive for them, racing teams move mountains and titles move their calendars. Ferrari did everything they could to employ him for 2010 including paying Kimi Raikkonen to sit a year out, in spite of him being on contract.
At present, notwithstanding when not contending in Formula 1, he is a sought after man with his prominence apparently dependably on the ascent in the USA, following his association in IndyCar and Daytona this season. It thus appears to be coherent for Wayne Taylor Racing to rapidly sign him up as he shows up at Daytona 24 out of two years; he is fast and he is well known.
Alonso had entered a year ago’s occasion – his first perseverance race – as a component of his arrangement for Le Mans 24 Hours with Toyota. He won that race to finish the second leg of the informal triple crown of engine dashing; just the Indy 500 stays to be won.
The twofold F1 title holder vied for McLaren manager Zak Brown’s United Autosports in 2018 however was never in dispute for the success driving a Ligier.
Alonso comes back with Wayne Taylor Racing, the group which won a year ago with Renger van der Zande, Jordan Taylor and Kamui Kobayashi as partners on board a Cadillac Dpi-V.R. Them three were at that point on-board when Fernando Alonso communicated his advantage. Group proprietor Wayne Taylor talked about how the Fernando Alonso bargain became all-good:
Zak introduced me to Fernando (at Daytona 2018) and, a couple of weeks later, I inquired if he was available for this year. Over the next several months, it looked like a possibility, and then it went away. Then, some time later, through McLaren and Zak, all of a sudden I got a text asking if there’s still a seat for Fernando. I said, ‘I’ll make one available’.
The up and coming Daytona occasion is the first of Alonso’s races in 2019. He additionally has an eye on winning the triple crown of continuance hustling (Sebring and Daytona) after Le Mans, aside from the WEC title with Toyota and the Indianapolis 500. Regardless of beginning as a leader, the Spaniard is wary in his positive thinking, considering the ideas of 24-hour hustling. He stated:
“Formula 1 is all about qualifying and the first lap, the start, the first corner. Here, it’s more about consistency, about traffic management, keeping the car safe and alive for the last couple of hours, so it’s a different approach to racing.The targets are higher this year but, at the same time, I know how these 24-hour races work, how difficult it is to predict all the things that will happen in 24 hours.”
