Alonso will be doing the Rookie Orientation Program today. As of last year a driver must complete 10 laps at 210-215 mph, followed by 15 laps at 215-220 mph and 15 laps at 220-plus mph. They are also allocated 5 sets of tyres.

Zak "We're racers" Brown is very cool.

I'm getting serious bouts of nostalgia and the good old days syndrome. And McLaren is definitely bouncing back up my favourite teams list.

If McLaren do contend the 500 on a regular basis, I hope this could pave the way for them to become another chassis manufacturer, rather than using Dallara's chassis.

Just caught a bit of it...looked like everything went to plan.

Not that I doubted he would do otherwise but it seems more real now...finding myself excited for a race in a way I haven't in a long time.

Same. Fortunately everybody agrees and it is changing for the better soon. It still isn't going to be the prettiest car in the world, but it's much better.

The 2018 car resembles the Lolas and Reynards they raced in the CART era, something many fans were hoping for, when the ICONIC Committee were deciding on the new car back in 2010.

There are certainly some similarities. The perfectly straight nose and the rear wheel aero devices are still a bit ugly, but it's a huge step forward and a great move. Now they should give them super skinny oval wings to improve the racing.

Somewhat unfortunate that this thread was moved from the F1 forum to the Indycar forum, but I understand why. Is I don't visit this part of the forum on a regular basis, I might drop out of the discussion.

I just was about to post that the F1 fans should watch the YouTube livestream because it is very interesting to see much of the behind the scenes stuff. I expect Indycar is much more open than F1 from a fan perspective, but I also suspect that this level of openness for what is a private test (after he did his rookie test work) may be unprecedented. My point being that this level of access is awesome for the fans.

Thanks for posting that live video, very good insight and nice to be able to see live the historic moment of Fred's first time in an Indycar. Getting more and more exciting

I wonder if Alonso got a little deja vu watching his andretti teammates drop out the races at barber and Phoenix so badly? Had to be a bad feeling when Marco couldn't even make the start at barber as he was there. A little "really? This is gonna happen over here too?"

I'm not too sure either as I moderate the IndyCar section, not that I have an ego to bruise, . I suppose it got moved because the focus will now shift more and more towards the 500 as we get closer to race day.

Otherwise, yes it was great to watch the behind the scenes activity. An excellent way to use social media.

McLeran in orange is just proper. Go Alonso.

It does look quite better and a certainly a much more simple design. Still too much side skirt for my liking. And I like how the lighting is darkened in this photo....scared to show too much too soon. And I see I'm about a month and a half late to that discussion
