Fernando Alonso hints he will race beyond 2017

Fernando Alonso hints he will race beyond 2017

Fernando had shot at half-gas, although Honda has achieved some improvement in the engine, in the straight now it is 14 kilometers per hour slower than the best instead of the nearly thirty of previous days. The auto is responding well to changes and everything is working fine.

"I am confident with the vehicle, I can attack as I want to".

Stoffel finished the day on 48 laps, and will hand over the reins to Fernando in the morning for the final day of the test. We had hoped to close the gap over the winter.

Right now Alonso is driving a auto that will not finish the first race of the season, which is going to be very far in the classification by the pole and that leads way to be the negative protagonist of a year that may be the last in Formula 1 of Fernando.

"We have only one problem: that is the power unit", he said. Alonso also noted that they are still discovering little things about the vehicle, but there is nothing to worry for Australia. "We are McLaren, one of the best teams that has already solved tough situations in the past", he said.

"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 pre-season testing remaining, McLaren is bottom of the timesheets for both laps completed and the fastest times recorded at the Circuit de Catalunya. "Everything feels good, but when you arrive to normal speed, you'll know what is going to happen". "The team will be fully ready to compete in Australia in a good level, and the only question mark is how much power we will have". From the analysis we can do compared to the other cars, around the corners we don't lose time in nearly all corners, but we're 30/40 km/h down in every single straight. "When people go pessimistic, I go optimistic".

"The last two years were hard for us, but we've seen quite a bit of progress throughout which was encouraging".

"What I am seeing now is really the opposite, more than ever this year and this winter".

"If one day in the auto I see people are doing fantastic lines, they are braking later than me, they do better starts than me, on that day I will stop and say "it's time".

(Laughs) "Oh yeah, for us, not only turn 3!" "I will not stop racing without a good result and one I deserve".

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