Legend Tom Kristensen sure Alonso will tackle Le Mans

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.”
