  |   F1

Fernando Alonso said he was satisfied with an "amazing" first day of official practice for the Indianapolis 500.

The McLaren driver, who is racing at this year's event on 28 May instead of at the Monaco Grand Prix, was 19th on Monday with a 223.025mph average.

"Everything went very smoothly," said the 35-year-old Spaniard, who is a two-time F1 world champion.

"The last half-an-hour we had some issues with the rear suspension and we could not complete the programme."

He added: "We had planned to run a little bit in traffic, so we missed that part, but overall it was an amazing day."
