It's me, or Alonso Deportago is the lead driver of Chase Carey via Zak Brown, hence his motorsportdoctom sponsorship on his overall?

Out of interest, hive mind, who was the last full-time F1 driver to run a more-or-less full-time campaign in another discipline? Stefan Bellof?

Brundle did a slate of sportscar races with F1 as did Derek Warwick. Teo Fabi in the early 80s was a regular in both Indycar and F1, albeit not full time precisely.

I seem to remember Brundle running in as many WSC races as his F1 schedule allowed in 1991

It's just been announced that the Fuji WEC race has been brought forward by a week so that it no longer clashes with the USA Grand Prix. This means that Alonso will be now be able to contest all 6 rounds of the championship without missing any Grand Prixes.

It does help that Fuji, who requested that the FIA allow the very late change, is owned by Toyota for whom Alonso just so happens to be driving for.

And by doing so they've managed to alienate an awful lot of sportscar and endurance drivers who would otherwise have been doing Petit Le Mans that weekend. Drivers with contracts to do that.

But hey, PLM is an IMSA race, so they can go hang, right?

This I think the FIA have got very wrong.

Ironically I noticed one of the names affected is Mike Conway, Alonso's Toyota teamate.

Bad decision to move it to clash with PLM, they could have found another weekend, but anyway, let's see if Fred can win the title now

Yes. The WEC season runs from May 2018 to June 2019.

I thought this an interesting question.

You are right, Stefan Bellof was probably the last genuine F1 driver to run in other programs in 1984 and 1985 he drove for Tyrrell in F1, and Brun in WEC (Champion in 1984) and Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft (precursor to DTM on steroids) (Champion in 1984). Quite a program.

Teo Fabi was the last full time F1 driver to run at Indy in 1984 before Alonso in 2017.

Michele Alboreto appears to be the last full time F1 driver to run in F2 in 1981, the 1982 F2 Championship being billed as a feeder to F1 seems to indicate that maybe the FIA changed some sort of entrance criterion??
