After his last disastrous stint with McLaren Alonso left F1 at the end of 2018 only to win two 24 Hours LeMans and also participating in the Dakar Rally and the Indy 500 two times. He has been chasing the triple crown which includes the Monaco GP, Indy 500 and the LeMans race. Alonso has now won two of the three with Indy 500 still eluding him.
