Over the Canadian Grand Prix weekend team number one Fernando Alonso has hinted the relationship between his McLaren team and Honda could be reaching breaking point. The continual woes suffered by the McLaren Honda partnership have been well documented throughout the previous few seasons, and it appears that the strain is finally beginning to show as Fernando Alonso suffered yet another engine failure during practice one in Canada. When quizzed by Sky Sports F1 Ted Kravitz following the conclusion of FP1, Alonso was on fighting form with his criticism of the Honda power unit. When discussing his teams form during the season so far, Alonso seemingly placed firm blame at the Japanese door when accounting for the deficit to pacesetters Ferrari and Mercedes on the F1 grid. Alonso said: "The chassis especially is very competitive and among the best. We are lacking in the power unit. McLaren belongs to the top and fighting for world championships. After two and a half years, maybe now is the time to change the situation" "I just want to win. Zak wants to win, Honda wants to win. There are some parts of the team which are now finally ready to fight for the championship, some others are not, and it's up to McLaren to change wherever they may feel is necessary." The scything comments from Alonso should come as no surprise to either his McLaren team or the Formula One paddock as Honda continue to show no disenable signs of improving what is generally regarded as the weakest engine of the current hybrid Formula One era. For Alonso's own part, at 35 years of age the Spanish driver must know his best years in the sport are growing fewer and fewer, and with it his chances of adding to the two World Championships already secured over 10 years ago, so even if McLaren don't look to make considerable changes to the structure within the team itself, then Alonso may look to find alternative opportunities either within the sport or in alternative series such as IndyCar or the World Endurance Championship. "Same with me, I want to win. I joined this project because I wanted to be world champion and we are not in that position. If you don't see things changing and if you are not in a competitive position, maybe you change project." Regardless of if you are a McLaren, Honda or Alonso fan or just an enthusiast of the sport itself, the current position of both team and driver is to the detriment of Formula One and needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. If that come from substantial improvements from the Japanese engine manufacturers, or wholesale changes to the partnership between team, engine and driving strength remains to be seen.
