Sergio Perez Talks Future Run at Indy 500

By Joey Barnes, Editor-in-Chief

The recent announcement of Fernando Alonso coming over to run in the 101st Running of the Indianapolis 500 has fellow Formula One competitor Sergio Perez expressing his desire to do that same – one day.

The focus of the racing world was revealed Wednesday when Alonso confirmed that he would trade one crown jewel event for another, electing to miss the Monaco Grand Prix to participate at the Brickyard.

A mix of reviews have come from his rivals, including Perez.

The 27-year-old Mexican isn’t willing to sacrifice F1’s most renown Grand Prix, but would like to do something someday with the Verizon IndyCar Series’ grand spectacle.

“I certainly wouldn’t miss Monaco because for me Monaco is my favorite weekend in the whole calendar, so I wouldn’t miss Monaco and normally you have that clash,” said Perez.

“But I’d like to do some other racing. I certainly have some interest in IndyCar.

“The Indy 500 is certainly one of the best races in the world, so I’d definitely to do it someday.”
