Fernando Alonso: Two-Time F1 Champion Completes Toyota Sportscar Test In Bahrain

F1's Fernando Alonso takes one more step towards 24 Hours of Le mans with WEC test

Fernando Alonso completes LMP1 test in Bahrain

The testing was done in Bahrain as part of the World Endurance Championship's "Rookie Test" day. Two, of Porsche's appearance in the top LMP1 class, its 919 Hybrid bowing out in favour of a Formula E campaign, albeit with records and Le Mans wins aplenty.

The end of the 2017 WEC season also marks the end of an era in the motorsport.

Which might suggest that Toyota would follow suit, with increasingly few LMP1 competitors left to race against (and no others being full factory efforts).

Officials said they believed the air was safe to breathe and that drinking water wasn't affected. Firefighters who responded were inside when the second explosion occurred at around 10:40 a.m.

The test comes a day after the final race of the world endurance season, the Six Hours of Bahrain, with Alonso then travelling to Abu Dhabi for the year's closing grand prix at Yas Marina.

Double F1 world champion Alonso, who competed in this year's Indianapolis 500, has set his sights on completing the so-called Triple Crown of motorsport.

So it's always been a question of "when" rather than "if" he'd get an endurance racing seat.

The potential deal came to light November 3 when a Wall Street Journal report said the companies were in "advanced" talks. In the biggest proposed deal so far, Broadcom Ltd. has offered to buy Qualcomm Inc. for more than $100 billion.

The 36-year-old McLaren Formula One driver will drive the Toyota TS050 hybrid auto in the one-day rookie test at the Sakhir circuit this week.

It is understood that the deal was not confirmed until the last minute due to complications in getting approval from Honda - a partner of McLaren in F1 - to let Alonso drive a rival manufacturer's auto. And he's now short of choices if that's not going to be with Toyota... "They are very consistent throughout a stint which is a positive thing".

Alonso completed more than 100 laps over the course of his rookie test, setting a best lap of 1m43.013s, which was just six tenths slower than Toyota regular Mike Conway managed in the sister auto.
