Le Mans legend Tom Kristensen is certain F1’s Fernando Alonso will contest Le Mans one day.
Spaniard Alonso cannot, however, tackle the fabled 24 hour endurance race this year, as McLaren-Honda forbids it and it clashes with next weekend’s inaugural grand prix in Baku.
But Kristensen, who won Le Mans a record nine times, said: “Two years ago I saw him at Le Mans and that he has a huge passion for racing here.
“I know that he has spoken to many people about it, including Mark Webber,” the 48-year-old Dane told Spain’s El Confidencial.
“I know he feels a great passion to do this race in the future.”
