Fernando Alonso has just won the Le Mans 24 hours with Toyota. helping the team wins its first ever Le Mans.
Alonso managed to win the event in his first ever appearance thanks to some wonderful driving from himself and former F1 drivers Sebastian Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima.
Alonso is now on course to win the Motosport triple crown, which comprises of the Monaco GP, Le Mans 24 and Indianapolis 500.
The Spaniard has 2 of them in the bag, as he won the Monaco GP in 2006 and 2007 and has just won the Le Mans 24.
He will now be vying for the Indianapolis 500.
Alonso had made it clear from the start of the season that Le Mans would be one of his priorities this season, especially after years of frustration in Formula 1.
And boy has he delivered!
He will now turn his attention to the Indianapolis 500 as he can now become only the 2nd driver after Britain’s Graham Hill. in the history of Motorsport to win the elusive triple crown.
For McLaren and Alonso the big question now is how will Alonso approach F1 from now on as he will have his sights set on that triple crown.
If McLaren fail to deliver towards the end of the year, Alonso could completely shift out of F1 and focus on IndyCar.
That would come as a huge blow for McLaren who have improved with the Renault powered engine this year but are nowhere close to the top 3 teams.
If the new upgrade fails to deliver in the next few races, Alonso could end his F1 season prematurely.
