The final day of the test programme ahead of the first Grand Prix of the season in Australia started quite unpleasant for McLaren-Honda. The car Fernando Alonso was able to overcome only 19 laps, and twice during the session the problems with it have caused red flags.
Kimi Raikkonen was the best in the first block of the final day of testing
Two hours after the beginning of the session the first time Alonso stopped on the track in the ninth turn, but after 35 minutes was able to resume work. However, the Spaniard again failed to complete his program and with his best time of four seconds gap from the leader Kimi Raikkonen finished the morning block of the test day.
“Fernando stopped on the track because of the same problems as Stoffel Vandorn yesterday – intermittent disconnect electrics – confirmed by the representative of the McLaren. – During the night we changed many of the components of the electronic module and the chassis. The team continues to make changes, to identify and eliminate the source of the problem.”
