It's Honda's problem, not mine, says Fernando Alonso

Martin Brundle discusses if Fernando Alonso leave Mc Laren for Ferrari or Mercedes at the end of this season after more troubles in Barcelona

"Running in the ovals maybe I learned how to go quick on the straights as well!" he said.

That debacle came a day after Alonso gave McLaren an ultimatum of six months to give him a auto with a chance of winning a championship.

McLaren's Fernando Alonso bounced back from Friday's breakdown during practice, making the third session of qualifying for the first time this year and finishing a season-best seventh, ahead of Sergio Perez of Force India and Felipe Massa in his Williams.

"I think you're not going to learn a lot by watching other cars go around so obviously he wanted to get rid of some energy, built-up energy, so I don't have any issue with that".

Honda has been working on significant revisions to its V6 engine in a bid to close a major power deficit to leading F1 engine manufacturers Mercedes and Ferrari, which Fernando Alonso estimates to be possibly more than 50bhp.

Alonso said the giddy heights of seventh on the grid had not made him regret in any way his decision to miss Monaco, where overtaking is extremely hard and points would be a definite possibility from such a position. Alonso has already chose to try his luck at the Indianapolis 500 instead of the Monaco GP this month.

Mclaren driver Fernando Alonso of Spain steers his auto during the qualifying session for the Spanish Formula One Grand Prix at the Barcelona Catalunya racetrack in Montmelo, Spain, Saturday, May 13, 2017.

It was a busy morning in the garages of both Mercedes and Ferrari, which had to replace engines.

When asked if it was one of his best-ever qualifying laps, he replied: "Yeah probably".

"There is the opportunity this weekend to do a one-two and pull away from the Ferraris", Hamilton said.

Mummies Discovered In Chamber In Egypt
The Touna el-Gabal site existed during the Greco-Roman period, which prevailed between third century NC and third century AD. In April, eight mummies were uncovered inside a 3,500-year-old tomb in the southern city of Luxor.

With two wins in four races, Vettel leads Hamilton by 13 points in the standings.

"I don't know what Mercedes was up to".

"I hope that the fact that we have been hit by pips since Friday will allow us to have a good race weekend", he said. "It is a question of getting it right".

It has sought extra help from independent engine consultant Ilmor and reportedly sounded out Mercedes too as part of a concerted effort to accelerate progress.

After smooth driving early, gusting winds gave drivers trouble in the afternoon. But the problem solved itself and Vettel continued on the track. "Going from corner to corner the auto felt different".
