Alonso: First lap off didn't cost McLaren points

Fernando Alonso: "Obviously, it's not an ideal start to the weekend as we completely missed the first practice session because of an engine problem".

Honda's Formula One reputation, after two seasons of unreliability and poor performance, is meanwhile being dragged deeper into the mud.

McLaren driver Fernando Alonso of Spain prepares at pits during the first practice session for the Spanish Formula One Grand Prix at the Barcelona Catalunya racetrack in Montmelo, Spain, Friday, May 12, 2017.

"This year the cars are good to drive", he said.

It is no surprise Alonso is growing exhausted of the auto and moreover the team, with the Indy500 probably his only chance at a win this year it is surely not long until another team snap him up. So he won't be sticking around another season if it doesn't by the end of this one.

McLaren are yet to score a point in four races.

"It was my decision", Alonso said.

Alonso managed to do 21 laps in the second practice session in the afternoon, but he finished last. We see this power, efficiency, corner speed - things we were missing in the last couple of years. "Definitely, our moment right now is not the best".

"Hopefully we improve the situation, not only the performance side but the reliability because sometimes we could take some points and the past and we had to stop the vehicle".

Honda are said to be seeking help from Mercedes to solve their engine troubles, and it was the sport's reigning champions back on top of the charts on Friday.

"Around September I will consider what I will do next year; if it's time to find challenges outside Formula One or if Formula One will give an opportunity to win the championship, which is my main goal. If that is not the case, l will be more than happy to talk to anyone". The Spaniard endured a frustrating race from that to 12th.

If his auto holds up, Alonso said he will need to use every bit of his veteran wiles to keep McLaren in the points.

"I think he will sit down some time in the summer and think 'Do they really have a path to give me a winning auto in 2018?'"

"I asked the engineers to put some reference on the steering wheel, which they normally don't do, so I think they [other rookies] take a very long time to pass the test".
