Alonso will have that time because he will remain in the U.S. until after the 500 on May 28. He will spend each morning this week in the Honda simulator in nearby Brownsburg before driving to IMS to drive his Andretti Autosport car — the one his contract allows for him to take home as a collector’s item after the race.

So from what I understand, Alonso finished 24th yesterday, so he's hovering around in the lower 2/3rds of the pack. I honestly don't think that's too bad.

RHR said in the press conference just now the cars are even more on a knife edge than he remembers they've ever been, but what's worse is there doesn't seem to be any consistency to it, one corner it's fine the next it's trying to swap ends, said something to the effect of "tomorrow is going to be interesting with the extra boost".
