It’s a question for Honda not for me – Alonso

Not a good start to a Spanish grand prix (home GP) weekend for Fernando Alonso. An engine problem and oil leaking from the Spaniard’s McLaren-Honda MCL32.

“Engine problem, engine problem,” Alonso reported over team radio. He’s now hitching a lift back to the pits while his stricken car is craned away – with more liquid pouring out of the MCL32 as it is lifted away.

Following the incident, he returns to paddock, Sky F1’s pit-lane reporter Natalie Pinkham has caught up with Fernando Alonso. And he’s fairly blunt about what went wrong:

“It’s a question for Honda not for me, Engine. Alonso told SkyF1

“The engine blew up after one corner. It’s the way it is, we miss the first session. I’m sorry for the fans.

“Hopefully the second session can be better and we recover this time.”

“It’s tough but it’s more tough for McLaren, who brings updates trying to find a millisecond here and there and we cannot even run. Hopefully we find a solution and can run in P2.”
