Alonso set to start British GP from the back

15 Juillet 2017

"Hopefully it'll stay like this tomorrow, weather-wise".

"Stoffel [Vandoorne] is also doing a great job, given very hard circumstances for a rookie, so I like where we are on the driver front".

"If the conditions are mixed then definitely the points are possible". Given that this is a long circuit, with a lot of high-speed corners, I think our vehicle has been performing well - I felt pretty comfortable out there.

Alonso said that topping Q1 had also been a very welcome boost to the team and their fans, even if it owed more to opportunism than outright pace.

Human remains were discovered Wednesday after search crews worked through sweltering heat and into the night to excavate a grave. The confession came in exchange for the D.A. taking the possibility of the death penalty off the table, DiNardo's lawyer said.

"I saw them on the in lap, the people on the grandstands [getting] excited", he said. It's good for the guys in the garage as well: they deserve it as they have been working so hard these past couple of years.

"It was only Q1, on dry tyres, but people need to see McLaren back on the top some time".

Alonso's table-topping performance represented the first time McLaren have headed a qualifying segment since the 2013 Indian Grand Prix, when Jenson Button was fastest in Q1.

After a promising Friday, when Alonso was well in the top 10 in both First and Second Practice, Honda chose to try and optimise a good result in the next race, in Hungary, which should suit the McLaren-Honda MCL32 better than the high-speed nature to Silverstone. "We maximised every chance we got", he commented.
