Fernando Alonso wins the 24 Hours of Daytona

Alonso retired from Formula One in November and is embarking on a season full of bucket list events, and the Rolex is his kickoff.

"Just an fantastic experience - flawless execution for the race", Alonso said. And the fearsome foursome turned a highly anticipated Rolex 24 victory into reality with their driving consistency and ability to stay out of trouble through all hours of the day and night, in conditions that ranged from fast and dry to chilly and extremely wet. The final F1 race of 2018 was the last for Alonso in Formula 1.

"I went to talk to him because he almost crashed", Alonso said. "But I can't even put into words how great this win is for us". I haven't been doing this very long. "I was following him, and he had a massive moment of hydroplaning".

The double F1 World Champion teamed up with Jordan Taylor, Kamui Kobayashi and Renger van der Zande in the Wayne Taylor Racing No. 10 Konica Minolta DPi Cadillac.

That alleged lie, which he also told to Congress, forms the basis for some of his other criminal charges in Friday's indictment . Stone has previously admitted to being in contact with Julian Assange of WikiLeaks during the Trump campaign.

Alonso says what counts as "unprecedented" now may differ from the past, given the way motorsport has evolved since Graham Hill became the only driver to win the Triple Crown of Le Mans, the Monaco Grand Prix and Indy 500.

The Spaniard helped move the Taylor vehicle to the front early and Kobayashi's overnight work helped keep it in front when rains struck early yesterday, leaving cars skidding and spraying water in unsafe conditions.

"When he came on the radio and was talking in fear, I realized they were doing the right thing (to stop racing)". We tried to have a quick integration, Kamui and myself, trying to learn as much as we could from the team in the Roar (Before the 24 test days) and then, on the race itself, it was very, very hard. "To have both my kids in the top three is pretty wonderful", Taylor said.

Netanyahu confirms air strikes on Iranian targets in Syria
News of the operation's conclusion comes in the final week of Israel's outgoing military chief Lt. Israel rarely comments on its operations so Mr Netanyahu's admission is rare.

He drove again early Sunday morning and had the vehicle out front for a lengthy yellow period that ultimately ended in the first stoppage for rain since 2004. You saw a lot of guys taking a lot of risk early in the race, but we waited with the game plan of running our own race and not getting caught up in anyone else's battles. This is not racing anymore.

Alexander Rossi was the only other driver to finish in the lead lap.

"It's not part of the Triple Crown, but if I win Indianapolis this will be the Quadruple Crown!" He seemed envious of the drivers before his time who could race all over the world in any sort of formula, and proving that it can still be done might be what Alonso does next.
