Video: Alonso explains why he crashed today at Indy
Alonso's mangled McLaren Chevy
An incident in turn 3 has ended Fernando Alonso's Indy 500 practice session Wednesday. Fernando is okay and the team are currently evaluating damage to the car.
He explains what happened in this interview but it is pretty clear his car is not handling well behind another car.
FERNANDO ALONSO - (On what happened prior to contact) “It was understeer on the car, and even if I lifted the throttle on the entry of the corner, it was not enough, and I lost completely the front aero. The wall came too close and too quickly. Unfortunately it happened today. We will lose a little bit of running time again. I’m sorry for the team, but we will learn and hopefully we will come back stronger tomorrow. I’m disappointed and sad for the team and for the guys.
