Alonso says penalty ‘shows how bad F1 is’

McLaren has same car from 2017 says Alonso Fernando Alonso's priority is no longer Formula 1

Stroll got a five-second time penalty for causing a collision but Alonso was then given the same penalty after skipping the chicane and rejoining the track much further ahead of his original position.

The stewards found Stroll at fault for the incident but penalised Alonso for what he did afterwards, with the note saying: "Although vehicle 14 was forced off the track, auto 14 thereafter cut the chicane and rejoined the track thereby gaining a significant advantage".

"I think it's hard to understand the decision". He is keen to take on a new challenge, one which will allow him to compete again for race wins and world championships. This is how bad Formula 1 is in the decisions, random ones, lacking consistency.

Caroline Wozniacki Wins 30th Title With China Open Victory
Caroline Wozniacki has claimed her third WTA tour title of the season, taking out the China Open in Beijing overnight (NZT). The 20th-ranked Latvian will face the victor of the semifinal between China's Wang Qiang and Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark.

"You are braking on the outside at the last corner", he continued, "and one guy didn't see you and came here to apologise after you go on the gravel, and you get the penalty". He didn't see me, because if he did, he wouldn't have pushed me on the grass. "It's the way it is".

Two-time world champion Alonso said the MCL33 was not handling badly, but just slow as he lapped 1.8s off the pace, nearly half a second clear of his team-mate.

However, Alonso was not happy about the penalty insisting he had no other option but to leave the track, and argued he should not have got the penalty after Stroll had accepted it was his fault.

The Kirin 980 is said to perform up to 20 percent faster while being up to 40 percent more power efficient than its predecessor. There have been leaks for both of those handsets, but this is the first mention of a Mate 20X model.

Alonso explained after the session: "I was convinced when I crossed the line that we could be in Q2 easily because probably it has been one of the best laps I did in my life here at Suzuka. Nothing went our way today, as races go, it was just a really bad one." he summarised.

Stroll was handed two points on his superlicence, taking his tally for the rolling 12 month period to six.

Alonso has already announced he's quitting Formula One at the end of the season, although he's yet to confirm where he'll drive in 2019. He will complete the World Endurance Championship (WEC) 2018/19 season with Toyota, but it is now uncertain whether he will pick up a partial or full IndyCar programme alongside that.
