Alonso not choosing between Dakar and Indy500 yet: I'll decide after the summer

Two-time Formula 1 champion Fernando Alonso will not announce where he will race next season just yet. The Spaniard said on his Instagram he will at least wait until the summer.

Since his Formula 1 retirement at the end of 2018 (and before that), the Asturian has kept very busy. He won the 24 Hours of Le Mans twice with Toyota, tried the Indy500 again with McLaren (unsuccessfully) and made his debut in the Dakar Rally in January.

After Dakar, Alonso promised that he would take it easy for the rest of 2020, also in order to be better prepared for 2021. He still has his eye on the triple crown, the unofficial title for winning a Formula 1 championship (or the Monaco Grand Prix, depending on who you ask), the Indy500 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and the only jewel missing from that crown for Alonso is Indy.

"The IndyCar and the Indy500 have published their new schedule, but until this is all over, I don't have much desire to fight or to think about putting the helmet back on," said Alonso in his live broadcast on Instagram.

He later added he won't make a decision in the next few months about what he will be doing next year.

"I will decide after the summer. Because everything has been postponed, including the new regulations for Formula 1 until the end of 2021. I also have to see whether or not I will do the Dakar next year. If it is not next year, I will do it again later."
