Alonso and team win rain-hit 24 Hours of Daytona

Baku, January 28, AZERTAC

Two-time Formula One champion Fernando Alonso won the rain-shortened 24 Hours of Daytona, overhauling Felipe Nasr two laps from the eventual finish on Sunday, according to Reuters.

The Spaniard became only the third Formula One champion to win the race, joining Phil Hill (1964) and Mario Andretti (1972).

Alonso, who retired from Formula One racing after the 2018 season, said the victory would rank very high among all his accomplishments.

Already the winner of last year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 37-year-old Alonso will attempt to complete the Triple Crown of motorsports by capturing the Indy 500 in May.
