(Reuters) – Former Formula One world champion Fernando Alonso failed to qualify for the Indianapolis 500 when he finished fourth fastest in a six-car last-row shootout on Sunday.

The Spaniard needed to be in the top three to make the 33-car field for the May 26 race. He had missed qualifying in his McLaren-prepared Chevrolet on Saturday.
