Bad news for Fernando Alonso at the premiere of the new powertrain Honda with McLaren expected to take a step forward in a Grand Prix of Belgium a priori very complicated for the team for the great demand of power.
The Spanish rider, after one turn of setup, saw as there was a water leak in the MGU-H (energy recovery system heat associated with the turbo), forcing the mechanics to disassemble the engine to detect the same.
As a result, Fernando Alonso has not been able to get out to the track again and, even, mark a reference time. In contrast, Jenson Button yes has been able to roll normally, despite having the same specification as Alonso: the new engine evolved that Honda released in this Great Prize.
it Remains to be seen if McLaren will decide to mount a drive is already used in the previous races, that would not include the last evolution or, on the contrary, mounted a new and evolved, assuming therefore the corresponding penalty, by using a sixth engine this season.
