Engine failure follow Alonso to IndyCar

Indy 500 rookie, double-time F1 world champion Fernando Alonso retires following Honda engine failure – he did an amazing run that triggers a standing cheer from the huge crowd.

Alonso’s dream of winning the Greatest Motor Racing Spectacle came to an all-too-familiar end when he was parked by an engine failure late on.

The Spaniard had been a force at the front of the pack throughout the first half of the race and even looked capable of taking a famous victory at the Brickyard, only for his engine to give up on the main straight and his hopes to go up in smoke.

Alonso became the third Honda driver to suffer an engine failure as he came towards the start/finish with around 20 laps remaining, his car grinding to a halt.
