Alonso said there was more camaraderie between IndyCar drivers than Formula One drivers, which furthered the speculation about him changing to IndyCar.

Alonso said he will announce his decision in September, which means he has likely already decided on what he’s going to do.

A move to IndyCar would be huge for the sport, and the 36-year-old Alonso would be a welcomed addition to the IndyCar series.
