The fastest Chevrolet driver had a top speed of 231.682. On the windy Wednesday, Alonso focused on pit stop practice and turned the fourth-fastest lap on a day when less than half the field chose to practice.
Fernando Alonso is prepared for what he expects will be "the most frightful laps" of his career as he takes part in qualifying for the Indy 500 this weekend. They're all very supportive of me and keep wishing me good luck.
In the "No Tow Rankings", Alonso finished a creditable ninth - setting a 223.687, within one miles per hour of team-mate Takuma Sato, who led the NTR, as Howard placed down in 24th position.
Marco Andretti ran a 226.338mph lap on opening day, some 2.6mph slower than when he paced the first day of practice a year ago, and any speed-related excitement never developed. So, Alonso left his home race weekend at the track entirely to go play some paddle. That explains why de Ferran might just be Alonso's key Indy 500 weapon, given that motorsport is a world where all too often the benefits of coaching are overlooked or even derided.

It's clearly fantastic for INDYCAR - that's easy for everyone to see - but it's also great for Fernando and great for Formula One.

It was a natural for fellow-IndyCar Series team-owner Bobby Rahal to ask Penske to serve as honorary chairman of the newly formed Mark Donohue Foundation, a nonprofit of the Road Racing Drivers Club, of which Rahal is president. "Although, it's what you expected, what we expected, to be honest".
Rahal added that the foundation will carry on Donohue's memory.
He explained: "We did a rota over the night feeds, and then she was like, I want to do them because she used to wake up anyway. I just want to spend every moment with him but she ( Cheryl ) is so great, she does everything on her own.
