McLaren’s Fernando Alonso said his first experience of Indianapolis was “fun” as he passed his orientation and began testing for the Indy 500.

Alonso is missing the Monaco Grand Prix this month, where Jenson Button will return to Formula 1 to substitute for him, to race at Indianapolis.

The Spaniard completed his mandatory ‘rookie’ test before starting his preparations for the event on 28 May.
