Yusuke Hasegawa - Honda
After a disappointing grand prix weekend in Bahrain, we have since had an extremely busy few days during in-season testing, also at the Bahrain International Circuit. The team has been working hard to implement some countermeasures to help combat our MGU-H issues. By the second day of testing, we think we were able to confirm the direction of our solution against the issue after completing 81 laps with Stoffel behind the wheel. The results are testament to the team's hard work and determination.feedback

Fernando Alonso, Zak Brown, Rickie Fowler and Yusuke Hasegawa, are those who have spoken the most about this topic. Fernando Alonso said: “It was a frustrating race. The deficit in power and performance we had on the straights today was amazing. Sometimes I looked in the mirrors at the beginning of the straights and saw the other cars 300, 400 metres behind, so I forgot completely about that car and started changing settings on the steering wheel and doing my own things, then the next thing I see when I come on the brakes is that car alongside me. We were running close to the points but that's not enough. Today we never had the pace we had in Australia and China, and, in the end, we had a problem and we decided to retire the car.”.

It was amazing, the deficit we had on the straight. Sometimes I looked in the mirror at the beginning of the straight and I saw the car 300-400 metres behind, so I forgot completely about the car, started changing settings on the steering wheel, and on the braking he was alongside!feedback

Fernando Alonso

Here it has to be something from the heat. [I will be] a quick camel tomorrow! The lap was good, until the last corner I was half a second faster than in Q1, but I went on the throttle and it blew up. Unfortunately that's the situation and we see tomorrow what we can do. The lap was good, we were going to be somewhere between 12th and 14th, again, as in the first two races, but the engine blew up and I just dived into the pits.feedback

Fernando Alonso

There is no point for us to talk about drivability if we cannot complete a lap or do the qualifying. I don't really care too much about the drivability if I cannot finish a race so far this year or finish the qualifying now.feedback

Fernando Alonso

It's hurting. We had the possibility to be a couple of places better and now we have to fit a new power unit tomorrow without the perfect settings and no warm-up or laps to set the engine, so we will probably have a difficult race.feedback

Yusuke Hasegawa - Honda

Fernando will use a new MGU-H and Stoffel also a low-mileage one, so I think we will be alright tomorrow.feedback

Eric Boullier

On an extremely hot day here in Bahrain, the mercury nudging 40 degrees, Fernando got through his planned programme without interruption, garnering us a large amount of data to crunch this evening. For Stoffel, things were quite a lot more tricky. His car was beset with serial MGU-H issues, which we're now investigating with Honda, and as a result he was unable to do anything like as much running as we'd have liked him to.feedback

Zak Brown

As Fernando has said - whoever we end up putting in the car, Stoffel is doing an outstanding job, so we will expect whatever the car is capable of, Stoffel to be able to achieve that. As will whoever the co-driver is. We have to look at bigger picture and the entirely of what McLaren-Honda is trying to achieve, for the sacrifice of not having Fernando in Monaco but having him in Indy, when we step back and look at the season we will say that was the right decision.feedback

David Whiston - Morningstar

The market cares more about the potential new market value of the other businesses Tesla is in than about real profits and cash flow. Right now there is nothing to slow Tesla's momentum. They could pass Honda, too.feedback

Zak Brown

Well it came about quite quickly. Obviously I'm one of the newest members of the team so while I had aspirations for us to get back to Indianapolis in the future and the thought of doing it with Fernando Alonso and Honda was a stunning idea, felt a bit like a dream and probably a bit early to start pursuing it.feedback

Zak Brown

It is one of those where it's one of those jokes with some truth to it. So I said to Fernando before Australia 'one of these days we should do Indy together'... just kind of threw it out there to see what kind of reaction I would get it, and he kind of joked back. I thought 'Ok, I've thrown the bait out in the water but I'll leave it at that.feedback

Fernando Alonso

On Saturday I arrived at the circuit and said, Yes, this is a good decision for everyone: a win-win for myself, for F1, the fans, everyone. Two days ago on Monday, everything became real. I was not completely sure on Saturday in China if it was still possible to make it so quick, but we had a huge help from Indy, from the Speedway, from the promoter and together with Zak's contacts and Andretti Autosport. They helped everything become real in two days.feedback

Zak Brown

Fernando's desire to do it and our desire to do it and our desire to support him and do it together accelerated how quickly we were able to make this happen.feedback

Zak Brown

A lot of hard work with IndyCar helping us behind the scenes, Michael Andretti and of course it wouldn't happen without Honda's support so that's how we got started and how we've got where we today and I think we're all very excited about it.feedback

Zak Brown

Then when Fernando and I were with [racing director] Eric [Boullier] and Honda in Australia it came up in conversation, one of the mornings, and Fernando brought it up and said 'Honda, you have an unbelievably great history at the speedway, I have a dream to win the Triple Crown and wanted to do Le Mans in the past and I'd love to do the Indy 500 with you. There wasn't a timeline on it but I thought 'Ah, he might actually be serious about this!feedback

Mansour Ojjeh

I've attended the Indy 500, and I came away hugely impressed by the scope and scale of this enormous and well-organised event, and the sheer enthusiasm of the hundreds of thousands of fans in attendance. More than 30 years [after McLaren's Indy 500 wins], I'm pleased and proud that we're about to embark on a new IndyCar era for McLaren, this time with Andretti Autosport and Honda.feedback

Fernando Alonso

I'm immensely excited that I'll be racing in this year's Indy 500, with McLaren, Honda and Andretti Autosport. The Indy 500 is one of the most famous races on the global motorsport calendar, rivalled only by the Le Mans 24 Hours and the Monaco Grand Prix, and it's of course a regret of mine that I won't be able to race at Monaco this year. But Monaco will be the only 2017 Grand Prix I'll be missing, and I'll be back in the cockpit of the McLaren-Honda for the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal in early June.feedback

Zak Brown

We would have liked to see different progress from '16 to '17, but I think we've identified, they've idenitified what the majority of the issues are, and we're working hard on them. Just to get two cars to the finish compared to what testing looked like, I think we can see in a short period of time they addressed reliability, so now we need to continue with that reliability and get some more power and they've got a plan, it's just going to take a bit of time.feedback

Zak Brown

We've been to Japan a lot, they've been with us a lot. The top bosses are out again this weekend. We're all knuckling down and working super hard. There's no conversation going about quitting or going different ways.feedback

Zak Brown

This year, clearly the start of it is a disappointment to where we thought we would be. We're in year three. If you go back and look at how long Mercedes, Renault, Ferrari have been in, they've got decades of head start, so this year's definitely an initial setback. But we're very committed to them, they've very committed.feedback

Zak Brown

Oh yeah, we definitely can. We definitely need things to change. We're not happy, our fans aren't happy, they're not happy. We're a team that's used to winning races and world championships, and we know this was going to be a bit of a journey.feedback

Zak Brown

You would expect him to make comments about competitiveness - so I don't think that is a surprise or unhealthy. It is tough on all of because and we get interviewed a lot, every once in a while you let a little emotion get to you and you say something that gets construed in the wrong way, but the relationship is very healthy.feedback

Zak Brown

I think Fernando wants to be very competitive, and if you look at any world champion driver, they are not satisfied unless they are winning. That is why we have them.feedback

Jeff Conrad - American Honda Motor

Many automakers are looking for signs of market stability as consumers continue to head towards trucks and SUVs. But cars are still a compelling choice for many, especially when you have the right formula. Civic is a great example.feedback

Mark LaNeve - Ford Motor

Our high-series Super Duty trucks and all-new F-150 Raptor drove double digit F-Series sales gains in March, along with the strongest year-over-year increase in transaction prices of any truck manufacturer in the industry.feedback

Kurt McNeil

Chevrolet will have the industry's broadest and freshest lineup of utility vehicles led by the all-new 2018 Equinox and Traverse, plus we have a unique three-truck pickup strategy and a dominant position in large SUVs. We also have a first-mover advantage in many segments. It will be years before key competitors are able to launch rivals to the Chevrolet Bolt EV, Colorado and Trax.feedback

Vincenzo Montella - AC Milan

When we have thought that a game was easy on paper, we've tended to get poor results, such as against Udinese and Sampdoria. When we had a more difficult fixture, we've actually done better. We've got Gustavo Gomez back and he was able to take part in the full training session. I have to assess players who crossed the ocean for international duty, like Keisuke Honda, Carlos Bacca and Cristian Zapata.feedback

Colin Furze

Stig's at his happiest when he's making the slow, fast - so what better way to celebrate the new series of Top Gear than by taking a rusty old bumper car and converting it into the ultimate fairground speed machine?feedback

Yusuke Hasegawa - Honda

But it is not a one-day job. In a month's time or two weeks' time I would like to try, but I cannot guarantee here. As soon as I can prepare that I am happy to introduce that. Also the same, the rumour is just a rumour. After the winter test we are having a strong pressure from the team and from the driver, but we keep improving. We try to keep improving. And of course a second team, we try to have some conversation but nothing is fixed.feedback

Yusuke Hasegawa - Honda

The problem that we had in the testing, every single reason [for the problems] we tried to modify the engine, but from the performance point of view we are still struggling to extract more power from the engine. Actually it is different from the test situation. But I hope reliability issue was fixed already. I cannot guarantee when we can get the power, but as soon as possible of course we will try to introduce a new specification for that.feedback

Fernando Alonso

Yeah today was alright. Reliability was good, speed was not where we want to be but better. I think some others had some issues.feedback

Zak Brown

We've got various upgrades throughout the year but nothing substantial where we'll come out with a grand prix that is significantly different to what we have.feedback

Zak Brown

Yeah I think it is just that. Race-by-race we can get a little bit more power, a little bit more speed, not compromise reliability, then just every race if we can improve upon, I don't think they'll be a step change in any one grand prix, it'll just be gradual progression as the game plan.feedback

Fernando Alonso

We had some issues but in terms of the experience we had in winter testing, we have less issues than Barcelona so we were able to run a little bit more in FP1 and FP2. Thanks to that we extracted a little bit of the potential of the car because obviously you are testing new things every time you go out. Of course. I feel well prepared, I feel very fast, I'm very fast in the corners. When I run behind someone I catch someone in the corners by 50 metres, I lose 200 [metres] on the straights. Very frustrating.feedback

Fernando Alonso

To have a good championship position. To have podiums to win races, that's the aim when you start a new season and when you're in a big team like McLaren. That's the dream and the aim but we know it's going to be difficult especially after winter testing where we had so many difficulties. There's still a long way to go for us and we need to see a reaction from Honda as soon as possible. We need to give time to tell us how the races are. There are many questions we need to answer.feedback

Fernando Alonso

It's frustrating. I have been preparing for this year a lot. I feel great and like I'm driving at my best. So when you're not competitive or not able to do 10 or 11 laps in winter testing it's frustrating but it's the way it is and now we need to work hard and not give up. It's just the way it is and hopefully we can improve the situation.feedback

Fernando Alonso

I don't know the details on how we can improve the power and the power unit. I'm sure there are a lot of complexities behind and I don't know the full picture but we need to speed up, change gear and be at the level of our competitors and hopefully we can do it as soon as possible.feedback

Fernando Alonso

This is Formula One, nobody will wait for you for one day or one hour -- this is not a charity game. We need to improve, raise our level, compete hard and hopefully enjoy the challenge.feedback

Fernando Alonso

We already know the sport is a lot more physical and the cars are more challenging to drive – from a driver's point of view this is exactly what we were looking for in the new regulations, and I really hope this will translate to good battles on track. After a difficult two weeks of testing we're prepared to face a difficult weekend in Melbourne. We'll do our best with what we have and there's a lot of hard work and collaboration happening within the team, but the lack of time before the first race means you have fewer options for big changes.feedback

Yusuke Hasegawa - Honda

Of course the situation we find ourselves in is not what we hoped for when we returned to Formula One, but we are still 100 per cent committed to our future in the sport and our relationship with McLaren. We believe in this partnership as does McLaren, and in order to move forward it is important for us to work as one team and overcome the situation together. The priority is to maintain honest and open communication, and to continue strengthening all relationships between Honda and McLaren despite the difficulties we are facing. This is not a short-term project for us.feedback

Fernando Alonso

I think the car is good. From the analysis we can do compared to the other cars, around the corners we don't lose time in almost all corners, but we're 30/40 km/h down in every single straight. Adding up all the time lost on the straights, you get the gap we have to the faster cars.feedback

Fernando Alonso

I get a positive feeling from the new rules, in general. We can attack the corners, we can feel there's a lot more grip, so that was a nice and positive surprise. Now we can drive flat out, the way we like, not like little kids to keep the tyres alive, to prevent strange things from happening, etc. That's the best way to feel a Formula One car, so it's fun to be free to attack and all that is missing is going down the straights at the same speed as the others.feedback

Fernando Alonso

This is not the Australia-spec engine but it's an evolution from what we had last week. For Australia we'll have a different evolution, so from that point of view there's still hope to gain some power and reliability with the final version. But last week's spec didn't deliver the results expected and this week's spec is also going bellow expectations. For Australia we'll have to hope for more, we have to be hopeful because the last two specs we worked with didn't match our expectations. We'll see.feedback

Fernando Alonso

I don't know, it's a question for Honda where they are lacking power. I am not an engineer or an engine designer yet, maybe in the future ... but I don't think it is a deployment issue because many straights here, so in one straight or another you deploy until the braking zone and you lose 30 or 40 km/h in every straight.feedback

Fernando Alonso

As of today we may have even less power than last year, but we're running with settings that are not even close to the ones we'll use in Australia, for different reasons, for different problems we have in the engine. The full power of our engine won't be seen until we all the problems we are experiencing are sorted.feedback

Fernando Alonso

Every lap we do we are improving the situation slowly. The oil tank was quite an amateur problem that we had that day and then from day one we keep unlocking a little bit the situation in terms of power and in terms of reliability. With more laps you discover other things; temperature in the rear caliper or bodywork that is not properly tight -- things that normally you discover in day one or day two of winter testing.feedback

Fernando Alonso

We have only one problem: that is the power unit. There is no reliability and there is no power. I think we are 30 km/h down on every straight. When you are 30 km/h down on every straight, it is difficult also to have a feeling on the car. Everything feels good, but when you arrive to normal speed you don't know what is going to happen.feedback

Fernando Alonso

It is not a surprise, last week was not ideal for us. Today more or less we knew we were in front of a tough day so we tried to learn as much as we can.feedback

Fernando Alonso

We are not fully ready to complete a grand prix yet.feedback

Rickie Fowler

I thought all of them looked pretty good. It was a little deflating on 18. Thought I hit a pretty good drive and thought I would have a chance, and I just couldn't get home and laid up in the water, which was bad.feedback

Tyrrell Hatton

All you can do is try your best and play well. That's what I try and do every week. It's a new course for me. I played 27 holes on Monday and Tuesday, and my caddie has done enough homework. So we know what to do. Hopefully, I'll just play well.feedback

Rickie Fowler

It would be nice to follow in their footsteps. But I do have a lot of work to do tomorrow. A four-shot lead is nice. That can obviously go away very quickly, too.feedback

Rickie Fowler

If you're playing from three, four shots behind, you can't make a mistake. When you're out front, four shots, I make a mistake, OK, we're still up. ... To be out front and be in control and with the way I feel about the game, the way I've been swinging, I'm looking forward to it.feedback

Rickie Fowler

I definitely need to put myself in this position more often, which is just going to lead to me winning more often. I'm not going to be able to take a 36- or 54-hole lead every time and win, but the more times you put yourself there, the more trophies I get to hold on Sunday.feedback

Rickie Fowler

I know I have the lead, and it's nice to go out in front. But you still have to play, and especially around this place, it can jump up and bite you at any time.feedback

Ryan Palmer

And he went right to work and made phone calls for me. I can't think him enough for what he did. It's been a long ride.feedback

Ryan Palmer

I watched a few tournaments. There were times when she said I should have gone and played. I was going to play Vegas and I was going to play Malaysia, but after that, there was no way I could play golf. Enjoyed time at home, took care of the kids. But it was a lot of hard times, for sure. The greens, all hell broke loose – the nerves, anxiety right hand. I spent four weeks going through that. Felt like it was the best putting I've done in a year and a half, and it's carried over to this week.feedback

Wesley Bryan

Don't like making bogeys, but any time you find yourself using a putter out of the trees for your second shot, it's not good. Glad to settle for bogey there and glad to get one on 18, tied for the lead going into the weekend.feedback

Rickie Fowler

I feel like it's time for me to start finishing off some more events when I am in this position. I wouldn't look just back at this specific event, but there's been a few where I've had a chance, and I feel very good out front or around the guys in the lead. I'm looking forward to this weekend.feedback

Cody Gribble

We both know exactly how we want the ball to come out. We want less curve. I tend to draw it too much. I know we wanted more a cut swing, but kind of finally ... it's hard to explain. It clicked today, but it could be lost again tomorrow. You never know. It was a great start, and hopefully I can build on it.feedback

Rickie Fowler

If the weather stays good and it's able to dry out, I don't see the golf course getting any easier.feedback

It was very soft and there was not much wind. Once you miss the fairway, it was actually OK from the rough because the greens are soft. I've not played the golf course in easier conditions.feedback

Cody Gribble

This is one of the tournaments I like to play. I played it well in Q-school a couple years ago. I've got some good memories.feedback

Martin Kaymer

I felt very calm over the ball. I enjoy the golf course. When you stand on the first tee, you don't feel like you need to make five or six birdies. It's a ball-striking golf course, but even level par or 1-over par is a very good round.feedback
