I think all you can do is try and assume that a driver is in 'top' machinery for each one. I think the influence of a winning car is certainly higher in F1 and Le Mans. There's a lot of luck and random chance at the 500 regarding fuel mileage, cautions, crashes etc. There are always more potential winners going into the 500 than any Monaco GP or Le Mans.

Over-simplistic I know, but if Alonso was in a Porsche this year he'd have a 1 in 5 chance of winning Le Mans. In a Mercedes at Monaco this season I'd say it's roughly similar in terms of pace advantage.


Obviously this is all before you take into account which race is more physically demanding, challenges of the specific cars, circuits etc.

You could write a whole thesis on it.

Well just been confirmed he will race with Toyota next year, confirming that they will be there as well as Alonso behind the wheel, looks like he will contest most if not all of the 5 races next year

I know he's testing but I've not yet seen any official confirmation - although I am expecting it.

At the moment it is at the "we understand", "the BBC has learnt", etc... stage rather than confirmed. I suspect that is why S griffin was asking.

It's looking pretty much a done deal at the moment, but we wait an official announcement.

Toyota have just announced that they will race in WEC next year. Probably best they waited till after this before announcing Alonso

Alonso says it would be nice to go endurance racing “one day”

"One day", when he will be literally endurance racing in two months time

But I do like how in this politically correct statement he seemingly doesn't consider the lucky-dog wave-by caution fest of Daytona real endurance
