Fernando Alonso has no fear after huge IndyCar crash

Fernando Alonso says he has "no fear" about climbing back into the cockpit after his huge crash wrecked his McLaren Indycar on Wednesday.

Indy500 practice resumes on Thursday as he prepares to clinch the final jigsaw piece for Motorsport's triple crown in just over a week.

During his first Indy500 attempt, Alonso managed to avoid any crashes. He spoke to the Associated Press and explained his experience.

"I think obviously there is a moment of stress, and this moment of danger that you feel you are in a single-seater and you are very fast and you will hit something at very high speed and it is going to hurt a little bit,” the Spaniard said.

“All the accidents feel more or less the same way, here the difference is the speed you hit the wall is very high."

The two-time Formula 1 champion remains positive about the whole occasion. He will climb back into his papaya orange car on Thursday to prepare for the start of qualifying on Saturday.

“I am always positive. We will be back stronger. The team is making sure everything is ready for tomorrow. I am ready for tomorrow. No fear. And we will be fast again," Alonso concluded.
