Fernando Alonso’s complaints over team radio during the race – when he vented his frustration at racing with a “GP2 engine” and describing the car’s performance as “very embarrassing”.
“It’s not very constructive when you are trying to build a stronger relationship [with Honda management],” he said.
“Do I condone it? No. Am I going to go ballistic? No. I will handle it in my own way and my way is not in public.
“I can understand it – it’s not just one race.”
Asked by BBC Sport about his comments on the radio – he referred to racing a “GP2 engine” and said the car’s performance was “very embarrassing” – Alonso said:
“You’re obviously frustrated when you are overtaken on the straights. In corners other cars are braking late and making mistakes and you are perfect in the corners.
“On the positive side, we keep improving reliability and we didn’t repeat the errors in Singapore.”
