Fernando Alonso will test an Indycar next week, it emerged at Monza.

The 2005 and 2006 world champion has announced he is quitting Formula 1 at the end of the year, and is hotly tipped to switch to Indycar full-time.

Considering the possibilities

"Yes, Alonso will test with Andretti. He has not decided what he will do, but he remains part of the McLaren family. We are continuing to work with Indycar on all the possibilities," McLaren boss Zak Brown, who is considering an Indycar team for the Woking outfit, told Movistar.

"My decision for next year is not going to be based on Wednesday. I have everything decided in my head already.
