Indy 500 2019 news: McLaren, Fernando Alonso, Zak Brown, crash, video, latest, F1

Published

The comedy of errors that doomed McLaren’s disastrous return to the Indianapolis 500 began months before Fernando Alonso failed to qualify for the race. How bad was it? A week before Alonso’s first test in the car, the team realised it didn’t even have a steering wheel.

McLaren CEO Zak Brown acknowledged Monday the team was woefully unprepared and small oversights snowballed into the final result. Bob Fernley, the head of the operation, was fired hours after Alonso missed the race and Brown returned to England to digest the embarrassment of his venture.

Brown on Monday provided The Associated Press a detailed timeline of the bloopers and blunders that led to Alonso missing the race, the last piece the two-time Formula One champion needs in his quest to win motorsports’ version of the Triple Crown.

“I don’t think we came into this arrogant, I think we were unprepared,” Brown said. “We didn’t deserve to be in the race and it’s our own fault. It’s not like we showed up and gave our best. We defeated ourselves.”

Daniel Ricciardo could be set for another strong showing this weekend at Renault’s home grand prix if comments by teammate Nico Hulkenberg is anything to go by.

Last time out at the Canadian Grand Prix saw Renault record their biggest points haul of the season to date as Ricciardo and Hulkenberg finished in P6 and P7 respectively, splitting the Red Bulls in the process.

They also put in a strong qualifying performance, with Ricciardo in at P4 before managing to hold off the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas for as many as six laps.

Scott McLaughlin flexed his muscles once again to take provisional pole for Race 16 ahead of the Top 10 Shootout with the fastest lap ever recorded by a Supercar around Hidden Valley.

The DJR Team Penske is still on for the Triple Crown but was put under threat by David Reynolds who had earlier posted the quickest time of the weekend to take P2 overall.

However, both Red Bull Holden cars will be absent for the Top 10 Shootout as Jamie Whincup could only manage P11 with Shane van Gisbergen in P16 as crashes to Brad Jones Racing teammates overshadowed the whole session.
