Why IndyCar will be Alonso's toughest triple crown test

Fernando Alonso made the most of every minute of his first IndyCar road course test. That's the approach he's going to need to take, because conquering the next leg in his mission beyond Formula 1 is not going to be easy in the slightest.

The news of the Circuit of the Americas joining the IndyCar calendar for 2019 was rightly met with excitement this week as another step in the series reaffirming itself as a destination championship for more than just the Americas.

That announcement came just after the successful return of the Portland race, which attracted a huge turnout at the historic and challenging track, in a good case of IndyCar benefiting from revisiting its roots. Next year's return to Laguna Seca, synonymous with that Alex Zanardi overtake, falls into the same good-news category.
