Fernando Alonso signed with McLaren for the 2015 F1 season, although it now seems this wouldn't of been his only new team of 2015 if his ambitious plans came to fruition. It appears Alonso was close to joining Nico Hulkenberg in the third Porsche at this years Le Mans 24 Hours. Unfortunately his plans were quashed in the final stages by McLaren engine supplier Honda.
It appears Alonso was keen to join Porsche for this years Le Mans 24 Hours, although German publication Auto Motor und Sport stated "Porsche had been close to signing Fernando Alonso" until Honda "veto at the last second."
It also appears that talks for recently ousted Sauber driver Adrian Sutil to race at Le Mans this year have broken down also. It would of been a huge coup for the Le Mans 24 Hours if Fernando Alonso would have joined Porsche this year, and would of generated plenty of interest for the race although Honda clearly wanted to protect their star driver, meaning that Alonso will likely have to wait until after his F1 career is over to race in the Le Mans 24 Hours.
