Fernando

Alonso indicated he'd make his decision regarding plans for next season and beyond during the summer F1 break. Rumors have said he'll announce today. The IRL teased with this tweet late yesterday.

Can't say this came as a surprise in the slightest, especially after his LeMans win.

Wow! With Alonso and F1, it could've gone either way as far as his future was concerned. I personally thought he was going to stay in F1 until he was ready to retire from motorsports altogether so this is kind of surprising. I understand the move though and I'm sure he's going to miss the "circus" aspect of F1, although wherever he goes it's sure to make some noise.

Back late last month, Autoweek reported Michael Andretti saying that if Zak Brown and Alonso don’t decide until the next IndyCar Series race at Pocono on August 19, “it will be too late” to put a competitive deal together for a car in the 2019.

It would be a huge boost to IndyCar if Alonso joined the series full time. Similar to when Mansell came over to race in Champ Car.

He didn't say anything about retiring or quitting, just time to move on.

So that's good.
