F1Guy has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Monaco, probably Honda's best chance for points.

Very interesting. Possibly an attempt to keep Fernando interested...
Or is it a cop out? Have they promised him a potentially race-winning car in his 2017 contract (but craftily not mentioned that this won't be in Formula One)?

Seriously?

Very interesting and excited for Alonso as he's had a rotten run of late but it seems a low percentage move to throw him into an IndyCar at THE speedway. Hate that he'll miss Monaco and hopefully he can make the field. He should by just showing up, considering the potential numbers.

"Fernando Alonso, who has started 275 Grands Prix, has won 32 of those races, has become Formula 1 world champion twice, and has been Formula 1 runner-up three times."

Impressive to have those championship results with so few wins

"“Could Fernando win this year’s Indy 500? Well, I wouldn’t be so silly as to make any such rash prediction, but I expect him to be in the mix. Put it this way: the team he’ll be racing for won the race last year, using the same Honda engine, and he’s the best racing driver in the world."

Hmm

Very surprised by this.
I would have expected him to try Le Mans rather than Indy.

And as Zak Brown realises his share of the F1 TV rights fund is sliding down year by year, he does something that reminds Liberty that the McLaren brand isn't F1 dependent.

Handy, as renegotiation of the rights is a hot issue with the teams.

Incredible development!!

Something going on as why would team/manufacturer want to lose their best chance of a strong result in Monaco?!

Is this part 1 of Liberty promote the F1-IRL tie up programme mentioned a couple of months back?
