This should be very interesting. Alonso will be running for a top team and should have a competitive car. All of the anti-oval people here will hear directly from Alonso how difficult and exciting it is to race at Indy. Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Graham Hill, Denny Hulme, Nigel Mansell, Juan Pablo Montoya, etc, etc have all loved Indy. Maybe this will get some of you nay-sayers to watch one of the greatest races in the world this year?
In my opinion Fernando will get up to speed and be a top qualifier but running in traffic on race day will prove to be a bit of a problem...who knows.
