Fernando Alonso will attempt to win the Indy 500 in his first attempt today.
The Spanish racer has left his usual Formula One seat in the hands of Jenson Button this weekend as he takes on the tricky oval circuit.
Alonso has had a torrid season so far and will be looking to get back to winning ways at today's race.
The Indy 500 is 200 laps of a 2.5-mile 'superspeedway' with four left-hand turns banked at an angle of nine degrees, all of which look identical but have their own subtleties.
Speaking about the challenge that lies ahead, Alonso said: "“I don’t have a plan for the beginning of the race,” said Alonso. “In Formula 1, we are used to playing all of our cards in the first couple of corners because the positions are defined after that, but here it is very different.
“But I cannot say that I will play it safe at the beginning of the race because everyone else will take advantage of that. So I need to keep very open to what is going to happen and if I can run in a comfortable group, I will be happy.
“If I am falling behind, I will be calm and later on in the race be competitive. And if I am competitive at the beginning, I will not slow down to lose places.
“The race will put you in the position you deserve, so let’s see what happens.”
