Fernando Alonso is going to be one of the busiest race drivers this year as he attempts to race in F1 and the WEC
Fernando Alonso may not be doing the Indy 500 this year, instead his motorsport year is going to be even more packed as he’ll race in as many rounds as possible during the World Endurance Championship for Toyota alongside his F1 season with McLaren.
Last year Brendon Hartley did something similar when he was signed by Toro Rosso while still completing his championship season with Porsche in the WEC.
Starting at last weekend’s Daytona 24 Hours and finishing at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in November, here’s how Alonso’s 2018 season looks.
