Art St. Cyr, president, Honda Performance Development, on Fernando Alonso racing in the 101st Indianapolis 500:

 

“Obviously, we’re delighted to have Fernando Alonso join Honda for the Indianapolis 500. It strengthens our overall effort to win a 12th ‘500’, and is a great addition to the race for fans of motorsport worldwide. This accomplishment is truly a reflection of Honda’s global motorsports footprint. No company, outside of Honda, could join Andretti Autosport, McLaren and Fernando Alonso in a united effort to compete in the Indianapolis 500. We warmly welcome Fernando to the HPD family and eagerly look forward to working with him in May.”
