Alonso’s future though is a little uncertain, despite him having expressed interest in driving in the IndyCar series.
However, according to a report in the ‘Grande Premio’, Alonso will be racing for the Harding Racing team, which will involve support from McLaren, Chevrolet and Andretti.
Harding Racing team came into existence in 2017. It was formulated as a team that came to be known as the ‘Andretti B’ team.
Chevrolet and McLaren too will be working behind the scenes in order to get everything on the grid working smoothly.
Now, according to the report, Alonso will be racing for this rather new team in terms of ‘team registration’, however, it does have some very senior people dealing with the over functionalities of the team.
Citing sources, Brazilian motorsports media outlet @GrandePremio is reporting that Fernando Alonso (translated via @Google) “will be making the entire season next year by the Harding team, in a support that involves Andretti, McLaren and Chevrolet.”
