Liberty Media OK With F1's Alonso Skipping Monaco Race To Compete In Indy 500
Alonso to skip Monaco and that's OK
F1 Owner Liberty Media supports McLaren driver Fernando Alonso's move to skip the Monaco Grand Prix to race in the Indianapolis 500, according to McLaren Exec Dir Zak Brown.
That comes despite concern from some in the F1 world. Some pundits, including the Formula Money Twitter account run in part by noted F1 business journalist Christian Sylt, have questioned whether the move is a net positive for F1, given that the Indy 500 is a Verizon IndyCar Series race and that Monaco is perhaps F1's most important race.
