Change of engine at the last minute to Alonso before the Fast Nine


At the most inopportune moment, Fernando Alonso has received the news that the Honda engine in his Dallara DW12 has had to be changed hastily to be able to have ready the car in time to participate in the Fast Nine that solves the first positions of the grid of the Indianapolis 500-Mile race.

The Spanish rider took part in the last free practice session in preparation for the Fast Nine, but at the end of the same, as in the garage in the team McLaren-Honda-Andretti, the engine began to smoke.

After a brief inspection, the mechanics got to work quickly to change the motor for a new one and allow Fernando Alonso to be present at the culminating moment of the Pole Day: the dispute over the pole position of the Indianapolis 500-Mile race.
