With the Indy500 set for May 28, 2017, it's exciting to see Alonso tackling the IndyCar traffic and apparently getting comfortable with his McLaren-Honda racing car.
The Spaniard was the fastest among the "rookies and refreshers" test group with an average speed of 221.634 mph (356.685 km/h). While topping the rookie timing sheets, Alonso came across a critical situation in one of his test laps.
He faced two slower cars in the lead up to the banked section of the famed oval track, Alonso managed to pass his Andretti race car within an ever-tightening gap just in time to join the banking.
By performing the double overtake to perfection, the McLaren driver is indeed increasing out excitement level for his attempt at the Indy500 title on Sunday, May 28, 2017.
Managing traffic is one of the biggest challenges in oval racing. Therefore it's great to see that Alonso is already comfortable overtaking two cars moving at two different speeds.
Alonso is looking to become the second person to attempt motorsport racing's highest title called the "triple crown."
The F1 driver will be racing the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 as he aims to equal the late Graham Hill, who won in 1966 as a rookie at Indianapolis.
Now sit back, relax and watch the video.
