Fernando Alonso rejects McLaren offer to buy him into Indy 500

  • Former F1 world champion failed to qualify for Sunday’s race
  • Spaniard did not want to deprive another driver of a place

McLaren offered to buy Fernando Alonso a seat in the Indianapolis 500, but the two-time Formula One world champion told the team he was uncomfortable replacing a driver who had earned a spot in the race.

Alonso, with McLaren, failed to qualify for next Sunday’s race. The 37-year-old is trying to win motor sport’s version of the Triple Crown – the Monaco Grand Prix, Le Mans and the Indy 500 – and the latter is his remaining goal. McLaren was back at the 500 for the first time since it dominated the race in the 1970s. McLaren CEO Zak Brown said the team would not buy its way into the 500 and is halting this year’s effort. Bob Fernley, president of the team’s IndyCar operation, was fired on Sunday night after McLaren missed the race.
