It's no bad thing for Fred. McLaren didn't really properly prepare for the 500 last year. So hopefully he will do better with someone like Andretti

Not surprising really, the relationship seemed to not being going anywhere. Looks like Alonso's ride on the musical chairs in Formula 1 has run out of spots, as it does for everyone in time. I'm not sure if I could see him doing a Mansell and making a full time run at it in Indycar.

Alonso has personal sponsorship in the form of Kimoa, the Spanish clothing and accessories retailer, which he founded in March 2017. I'm sure any team would welcome the money it would bring but as you say, it's about whether he will make a full time run of it or not.

He’s not bringing money! He wants paying... he also wants space in the car for his brand.

Of course he will be bringing money. Whoever he drives for and it looks like Andretti Autosport, the car's not going to fund itself.

Why do you think Alonso won't be bringing any sponsorship money?

Because that’s not how he works.

He wants basic pay. He wants all his expenses. He wants space on the car for his Kimoa brand. He wants a share of the prize money.

If that is $2m but Michael can find $2.5m sponsorship, then it will happen.

He hasn't got a contract for a limited number of races per season, let alone a season long contract. This will be a one off, so I'm not sure how a regular salary would work. As for expenses, those would be covered through sponsorship. Regarding prize money, drivers get a share of the purse, depending on where they finish in the race and there are also other factors that determine the amount of money. I found this article about how prize money for the 500.

For those of you who don't follow IMSA, Scott Dixon won his third overall 24 Hours of Daytona, for Wayne Taylor Racing, in a Cadillac DPi-V.R. He won it previously with Chip Ganassi Racing in 2006 and 2015.

TK gets his send off lap around the ovals this season with Foyt. ABC Supply is Indy only deal so he's bringing 7/11, Bryant Heating and Cooling and Big Machine vodka for the other races. Guess he'll be done after his last laps at Gateway. Hopefully he's still running at the end and gets to lap last win or not.

Hats off to TK. He's been a true stalwart

It will be interesting to see if Bourdais does get the nod for the road course/street races.
