Video: Watch Alonso and Button go wheel-to-wheel on Indy oval

May 24 2020

Relive the nail-biting last-lap duel between Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button in the Legends Trophy race at Indianapolis.

Two-time Formula 1 champion Alonso took victory in the first of two races as part of The Race Legends Trophy round at the Indianapolis oval, defeating former McLaren team-mate Button in a photo-finish at the line.

Button and Alonso had passed each other repeatedly throughout the race, and Button had got down the inside to take the lead as they began the penultimate lap.

But Button had a big moment at Turn 4, twitching sideways and crucially allowing Alonso to breeze past him heading onto the final lap.

Watch the battle between Alonso and Button here, as well as all of Saturday’s races in full on The Race’s YouTube channel.
