(AP) -- Fernando Alonso will again attempt to complete motorsports' Triple Crown with a return to the Indianapolis 500 in May with McLaren.

The team failed to qualify Alonso for the race last season in a spectacular comedy of errors, including not having its car properly prepared to put the two-time Formula One champion in the field.

"We beat ourselves," McLaren CEO Zak Brown said Tuesday. "We have unfinished business with Fernando."
