Fernando Alonso, the racer from Spain will come back to Le Mans this weekend, where he was a piece of Toyota’s triumphant group a year ago.
Fernando has won Formula One drivers’ title twice, in 2005 and 2006, and he could win the 2018-19 World Endurance Championship for drivers in the event that he wins Le Mans once more, the last race of the W.E.C. season. His greatest rival will be Toyota’s other three-man group. Toyota has effectively won the makers’ title.

What was he aiming for?
Be that as it may, a win this end of the week will be self-contradicting one for Alonso, who is pursuing the subtle triple crown of motorsport. It has only been accomplished by Graham Hill of England, who won the Formula One drivers’ title in 1962 and 1968, the Monaco Grand Prix multiple times, the Indianapolis 500 out of 1966 and Le Mans in 1972. He passed on in a plane accident in 1975.

There are two renditions of the triple crown; Hill won them two. In one of them, the driver must win the Indy 500, Le Mans and also the Formula 1 World Championship. The other form drops that title and includes the Monaco Grand Prix.
Alonso’s tough luck
Alonso won Monaco in 2006 and 2007. So to guarantee either crown and match Hill, Alonso still needs to win Indy. He made an endeavour this year, however, wound up out of the race before it started.
Alonso was hustling for the McLaren Indy 500 group, and the parody of mistakes started early. The opening test was deferred by the guiding wheel not being prepared on schedule.
Testing limitations combined with losing the primary day of training to an electrical issue and the second day to an accident hampered McLaren’s arrangements. The group’s extra vehicle had been painted the wrong shade of orange, so it was in the paint shop when it was required on track.

At that point, motor issues were found. At the point when Alonso made it out for a solitary day’s trying, mistakes changing over crawls to centimetres influenced the ride tallness, and the vehicle’s floor scratched the track as he lapped.
“A troublesome week, no questions,” Alonso composed via social networking media at the time. “We attempted our best, even today with a totally extraordinary setup and approach, four laps level on the throttle yet we were not quick enough. It’s never simple to drive around here at 227 m.p.h.- in addition, and need more speed.
Let’s hope that he wins the Le Mans since this is going to be his final race with the Toyotas.
