Race car driver Fernando Alonzo has a Honda curse hanging over his head

Spanish race car driver Fernando Alonzo is a two-time Formula 1 World Champion.

For the 2010 season, Alonzo joined the famous Scuderia Ferrari team. When the McLaren team switched to Honda power units in 2015, Alonzo left Ferrari to join McLaren. I am sure Fernando now regrets making that move. The McLaren-Honda cars have been an utter failure, usually failing to qualify among the top 10 and often having the engines break down during the races.

Fernando received special permission from McLaren to participate in Sunday’s Indy 500. Fernando acquitted himself well, leading the race for 27 laps. He was running seventh with 21 laps to go when his Andretti Autosport Honda-powered car came to a screeching halt with an engine failure.

Poor old Fernando, he has a Honda curse hanging over his head.
