Watch as Alonso performs a sick double overtake during IndyCar practice
With the Indy500 just around the corner, it's confidence-inspiring to see Alonso getting stuck into the IndyCar field and obviously getting comfortable with his McLaren Honda racing car. While topping the rookie timing sheet in practice, the talented Spaniard came across a tricky situation during one of his test laps, suddenly asking questions about how he will deal with traffic at not far off 200mph.
Faced by two slower cars in the lead up to the banked section of the track, Alonso manages to thread his Andretti race car through an ever-tightening gap just in time to join the banking at speed. Judging the double overtake to perfection, the McLaren driver is certainly getting our juices flowing for his attempt at the Indy500 title on Sunday 28th May.
