Alonso sets date and targets to decide 2020 schedule
Fernando Alonso says he will begin to consider his plans for 202 in July, suggesting that he would prefer to focus on a single series next year, having embarked on numerous different disciplines in recent years as he has ramped up efforts to take out motorsport's 'Triple Crown'.
Having combined full campaigns in Formula 1 and the World Endurance Championship last year, Alonso has continued racing sports cars this year, and will return to the Brickyard in July to attempt the Indianapolis 500 for a second time – where victory would see him equal Graham Hill's unique feat of winning IndyCar's flagship race, the Monaco GP and Le Mans 24 Hours.
With the remaining races on the WEC calendar and Indy at the forefront of his thoughts, Alonso says he is yet to think about what he will be doing next year.
"At the moment I am focusing on Spa, Indianapolis and Le Mans and until July I will not consider anything about the future," Alonso told Spanish media.
Alonso has always conceded that his decision to step away from F1 could be reversed if he were offered a top-level drive.
