Alonso discusses multiple 2020 options

Alonso discusses multiple 2020 options

Fernando Alonso says he is weighing up multiple options for racing in 2020, having confirmed that he will not take part in the World Endurance Championship with Toyota Gazoo Racing. Alonso remains tied to the Japanese marque, amid suggestions he will tackle the Dakar Rally in the near future.

Alonso stepped away from Formula 1 after 17 years in the sport for 2019, with his focus turning to securing the 'Triple Crown' by adding an Indianapolis 500 victory to previous triumphs in the Monaco Grand Prix and Le Mans 24 Hours.

He will go for victory at the Brickyard with McLaren later this month.

If successful, attention will turn to another challenge, and the two-time world champion says he has multiple options.

"As I said last year when I stopped Formula 1, I feel in the best moment of my career. I've never been as quick and as prepared as now," Alonso said.

"I feel strong and ready for big challenges. It can be Formula 1 in 2020, it can be IndyCar. It can be different series outside all of this.

"If I remain free, in the second part of the year I will have that possibility to decide what I do in 2020. That's the reason why I couldn't commit in May.

"I need to wait and see what is going to happen in the next couple of months. Being free of any obligations is the best way I could approach those opportunities. If I was already committed with something, maybe those opportunities would not be there.

"I have two or three ideas on my mind that you will probably know in a couple of months. I am working on those and we will continue this challenge of mastering different ways of motorsport."
