Alonso expecting "incredible and immediate" reaction from McLaren

Alonso expecting

Professional sadness man and McLaren driver Fernando Alonso gave these statements to the press yesterday describing in no uncertain terms that his Honda engine is bad. Fernando Alonso says that the chassis responds well to changes and everything about it works fine. "If everything is in the wrong direction, I will attack next year".

"As we do 40 laps every day we are in day two of testing and discovering those things". We had hoped to close the gap over the winter. I feel really strong driving this year with these cars, I can use my driving style, my quick input on the steering wheel on entries like in the old days, so I'm really enjoying it.

"The chassis-side is hard because we are not pushing the speed that the others are doing because of the lack of power".

Honda has suffered mechanical and electrical problems with the power unit and discovered a design flaw with the oil tank on the first day.

The McLaren-Honda of Stoffel Vandoornestopped on track today, which happened while I was writing this article.

"I'll prepare very hard with the team over the next week, spend some more time in the simulator and go through the data we have brought back from the test, and hopefully we can go to Melbourne with some upgrades and some positive signs". With just two days of testing left before the first race in Australia, Alonso said it was clear where the problem was. The laps we complete are quality laps, we're getting to know the auto, we find some issues, like the rear brake calliper overheating after 11 laps, or the tear offs going into the radiators and making temperatures go up, meaning you have to put a net on the intake for Australia to prevent that from happening.

"The only question is how much power we will have".

The two-time Formula 1 champion did say he was enjoying the faster cars after the 2017 modifications but added: "I think we are 30 km/h down on every straight". When people go pessimistic, I go optimistic, and when people are overexcited, I'm getting anxious!

"The second priority is to be competitive, to eventually be in the battle for the top five, get to the podium and win races - everything we dreamed off for this year". I see myself at the highest level. What I am seeing now is completely the opposite, more than ever, this year, this winter. "So now it's time to attack". "For us, almost all the corners are flat".

On turn 3 at the Circuit de Catalunya - is Fernando able to take this flat out in the new auto?
