When it comes to Monaco, Indy and Le Mans, Alonso now refers regularly to his ambition to secure the motor racing “Triple Crown.”
“The priority is Formula 1,” Alonso said, “but there are many possibilities to do a fantastic 2018.”
France’s Auto Hebdo reports that Alonso, 36, may be allowed to try to win the Daytona 24-hour race early next year.
“The race has a great history, and it is held in January, when the F1 season has not begun,” a report in the Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo said.
A team co-founded by McLaren executive Zak Brown, United Autosports, races at Daytona.
