McLaren and Alonso eye IndyCar full-time (7th Update)
McLaren might enter the races before the 500 next year so they will have more experience under their belts come the 500.
The sour taste of not making the Indy 500 has turned both Alonso and McLaren away from IndyCar

UPDATE In this article Fernando Alonso says he will never run any IndyCar race but the 500, which firmly puts this entire rumor in the 'strong false' category.

05/29/19 This rumor is downgraded to 'false' today. “I think it’s highly unlikely we’ll be in IndyCar full-time next year,” McLaren Racing boss Zak Brown told RACER. “As enthusiastic as I am for IndyCar, given where we are in Formula 1, given what we just went through at Indy, I’d like to see us go back to Indy and get that right as a next step instead of totally jumping in. So I think it’s highly unlikely we’re in IndyCar full-time in 2020.”

Brown has also ruled out any further IndyCar entries this season despite having both a car and Alonso available, although he says that the team’s experiences over the past few weeks have reinforced the value of running additional races in the lead-up to next year’s 500.
