McLaren F1 team felt disbelief over latest Alonso engine faliure

Alonso completes two corners before engine issue in Spain FP1

As a result, Alonso decided the best way to prove his talent as a racer, not just a Grand Prix driver, was to begin his quest for the triple crown.

With Alonso out of the vehicle the McLaren was removed from the track by a crane, leaving his participation in practice in doubt.

Less than two hours later, Alonso posted a photo on Twitter of him playing paddle tennis with the message, "Keeping the body active", before returning to the track before the afternoon session.

" I get the impression that when we do not have trouble on Fridays and Saturdays, we are unable to finish the race on Sunday".

It comes a day after Alonso revealed he will make a decision on his future after the summer, during which time McLaren has to prove it can make a step forward to stop him from considering offers elsewhere. We see this power, efficiency, corner speed - things we were missing in the last couple of years.

Alonso is in the final season of a three-year contract with McLaren-Honda and smiled broadly at suggestions that he could leave to join Mercedes or Ferrari or Red Bull.

'Around September, October I need to consider what I will do next year, if it is time to find challenges outside Formula One or if in Formula One I have the opportunity to win the championship, ' Alonso said Thursday.

"I didn't want to spend the morning on the sofa watching television".

HP rolls out patch to fix keylogging bug in certain laptops
The HP update not only removes the driver's keylogger capabilities, but also the log file where these keystrokes were saved. The keylogger is used by audio drivers to determine when the up and down volume control buttons have been pressed.

"Everything ran smoothly on my side, however, we saw that on Fernando's side it was a bit more complex". "I managed a few laps, with more problems than anything else". He hasn't finished a race this season, and his McLaren broke down on the formation lap of the previous Russian GP.

Alonso added: "It's tough but it's tougher for McLaren, who bring updates trying to find a millisecond here and there and we can not even run".

Sporting a new funky nose to its Silver Arrows, Lewis Hamilton clocked a fastest lap of 1 minute, 21.521 seconds, with Vatteri Bottas only 0.029 seconds slower.

"If from here to September/October we are in a position where we see clearly a possibility to win in 2018, I will be more than happy to stay with the team".

The Brit was s second clear of Vettel's team-mate Kimi Raikkonen in third and fourth-place Vettel. So I don't know.

Practice will resume on Saturday before qualifying for Sunday's race.

"Sadness... disappointment... just kind of a state of disbelief", Brown said on his feelings of Alonso's stoppage.
