Alonso new ambassador of McLaren

NEW YORK (BBC): Two-time champion Fernando Alonso has become an ambassador for McLaren, a role that will include him testing their Formula 1 car this year.

The team said Alonso would “help advise the team’s drivers and engineers and drive at selected tests to support the development” of the 2019 and 2020 cars.

The Spaniard, 37, left F1 last year and is competing at the Indianapolis 500 this season for a McLaren team.
