2020 Fernando Alonso's dream of the Triple Crown, when he participated in the third time on the Indy 500 and again Not won. A victory at the oval classic is still missing the Spaniard to achieve the said triple crown. Two formula 1 titles (2005/06) and two 24-hour victories in Le Mans (2018/19) he already has.
Jacques Villeneuve, who could win the Indy 500 in 1995, does not believe that the Alonso will still succeed. "I think he stopped trying it," says the former Formula 1 pilot towards 'La Gazzetta dello Sport'.
"In the first year he was strong and then he has noticed that it is almost impossible to win the race if he only drives a race. He would have had to drive on all ovals and that's not him," who analyzes Villeneuve. The Formula 1 World Champion of 1997 is still missing a victory in Le Mans for the Triple Crown.

Thus, Alonso reacts to Villeneuves Comments
He admits to think about "Every day" - even with 50. "That's why I did not stop. I drive race with Porsche, I arrive in the Nascar. Now, with the hybrids, now, with the hybrids There are so many manufacturers, I would like to do that. "
and Alonso has not abandoned yet. On Villeneuves comments addressed, he replies: "Who knows who right and who do not? I think we all have different opinions and different views about how to race or how to achieve goals."
"Surely what the other people say about your own goals or your own dreams, do not think your thinking or kind of seeing things. So, if I do it again, then for the dream of the triple Crown or to try to reach the win, "says Alonso clear.

Timothee Chalamet's Dune will premiere at the Venice Film Festival
The hotly-anticipated feature, which is based on Frank Herbert's 1965 novel of the same name and directed by Denis Villeneuve, will make its debut out-of-competition on September 3rd. The flick was originally supposed to have its premiere in November of 2020 and has since been set back for several factors, including the onset of the global pandemic.
"It's not that you make this kind of race just for fun. But I do not know if I'll try again or not, if I do not make it again, Then not because someone else said that I can not win it, but because I personally do not feel the motivation to do it. "
Generally, Alonso does not regret any of its previous racing inserts in other categories. "There are many things you can learn from any other experience away from Formula 1, because Formula 1 is a very tight environment," the Spaniard knows.
"You repeat the same thing every two weeks and the same exact routine. Your driving style will be in a way over the years, and you simply follow the instructions of your team that optimize everything at the car. They also optimize your driving style, so Tell you what you should do. "
Alonso draws compared to long-distance and indycar
"everything is so controlled that you are unable to improvise many things to a Formula 1 weekend," says Alonso and draws the comparison: "For long-distance races you have to say, say We sometimes be, much more than any other race car. (...) And there is much more teamwork than in Formula 1. "
This other approach will take you for his future adventures in motorsport, explains Alonso. "The same goes for Indycar. I think the degree of detail you need to achieve in terms of the set-up, in terms of preparation for the Indy 500 race is much higher than every formula 1 event. "
"The cars are the same and every little detail can influence the driving style, performance, the overtaking possibilities. In this respect, there are many lessons learning in different categories, hopefully in Formula 1."
