McLaren Honda’s Fernando Alonso’s first morning of winter testing at the Barcelona Circuit Du Catalunya got off to a rocky start on Monday, as after just one installation lap his MLC32 came to a stop on track.
The issue was a Honda oil system with a spokeswoman from Honda Racing confirming:
We have an oil systems issue which requires a full investigation.
Despite the issue it is expected that McLaren will get back on track later today confirming:
We plan to run again today, but due to the difficult access location it will take several hours to resolve.
