However, while not yet a cause for celebration, eighth and 11th positions on an aerodynamically-challenging track such as this mark our best qualifying session of the season so far, and is certainly the step forward we were hoping for on track to correlate with the evidence we saw in simulation.
McLaren'sFernando Alonso says he's happy after qualifying 8th for the Spanish GP but admits the team need to push on with development of the auto.
Alonso admitted the result left him with mixed feelings, happy that McLaren has taken a step forward but aware that the gap to the front is still significant. In another way, this vehicle is supposed to be the Australian Grand Prix package and that delay on bringing the first improvements and having them not in the first race, having them here, probably put us in a hard position in the first couple of races. "Now we need to bring more things as quickly as possible".
Alonso started 13th in Azerbaijan and dropped to the back of the pack after another vehicle collided with him on the first lap.
The Spaniard was just four hundredths of a second slower than Kevin Magnussen who took the "best of the rest" slot for Haas, but the lead McLaren was nine tenths off Daniel Ricciardo's sixth-placed Red Bull. The top guys are still too high up so we need to close that gap, but I'm pleased that all the updates we brought here seem to be delivering as we expected. "In another way, this vehicle, is supposed to be the Australian Grand Prix package", he told Sky.
"But from now on we need to push the development and bring new parts every single race".
"This auto, let's say, was supposed to be the Australian Grand Prix package not here at the Spanish Grand Prix".
"Still a long way to go for us, but at the same time we were here previous year with zero points", two-time world champion Alonso said.
Alonso, who skipped last year's Monaco Grand Prix to race the Indy 500, triumphed at the Six Hours of Spa last weekend to record his first race victory since 2013. They reset whatever happened in the first couple of races and they come here and expect you to win and deliver the result.
