Alonso’s mood brightens with return to Indy 500 practice

The playful interaction illustrated how the mood surrounding Alonso and his McLaren Racing team changed dramatically during a short period of time.
On Friday, though, Alonso returned to the fickle 2.5-mile oval and showed some speed and comfort during the final practice before Saturday’s opening day of qualifying.
While relieved and buoyed by the competitive speed with a tow, Alonso admitted he was concerned about qualifying.
If Alonso expects to make it into the Fast Nine Shootout, he’ll need to make substantial gains at the last minute.
For Alonso, Friday’s return was more about finding stability than it was about finding speed.
