Fantastic news for motorsports fans, Fernando Alonso is reported (not 100%) to be testing the Toyota TS050 Hybrid on the 19th of November during the Bahrain practice session, does this mean Alonso is on the road to winning the fabled triple crown? which certainly is no easy feat. Only one driver in the history of motorsport has won the triple crown he goes by the name of Graham Hill. The triple crown consists of the Indy 500, Monaco GP and the Le Mans 24Hrs and are arguably some of the hardest and most competitive races on the planet. I would absolutely love to see Fernando Alonso win the triple crown and truly leave his mark on the world of motorsport in more ways that one.

Pietro Fittipaldi, who not only shares the name of the great Emmerson fittipaldi, but is also his grandson will be given a test in the stunning Porsche LMP1 if he can win the extremely competitive Formula 3.5 V8 championship, The test will take place a day after the final Formula 3.5 V8 race is held, and competition is fierce as not only is an LMP1 test up for grabs, 2nd place will get to test an LMP2 and 3rd place will get to test a GTE Pro car. The test's could currently go to any of the drivers in the top 6 as they are all mathematically in contention for the championship title.
