IndyCar tweet hints at Alonso return

Omnisport

Fernando Alonso's next move upon leaving Formula One may be to return to IndyCar, if a tweet the series' account reposted is to be believed.

A two-time world champion and three-time runner-up in F1, Alonso's team McLaren have confirmed he will leave at the end of the season after 17 years in the sport.

A move to IndyCar has been rumoured for Alonso, particularly as the 37-year-old requires a victory at the Indianapolis 500 to complete motorsport's triple crown having already won the Monaco Grand Prix and Le Mans 24 Hours race.
