McLaren drivers Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button collected more meaningless starting grid penalties at the Belgian Grand Prix on Saturday, taking their total tally to a drop of 105 places between the pair of them.
Jenson Button has put behind him the trauma of the burglary, in which he and his wife Jessica were allegedly gassed earlier this month, to focus on his return to work at this weekend`s Belgian Grand Prix.
Fernando Alonso finally scored his first point for McLaren in his second innings with the British team at the 2015 British Grand Prix on Sunday. The two-time World Champion finished tenth at a half-wet, half-dry Silverstone circuit after enduring a tumultuous start to the 52-lap race.
Jenson Button joked he would like to see reverse starting grids introduced into Formula One with immediate effect but the McLaren driver had little to smile about otherwise at the British Grand Prix on Saturday.
After accumulating a total of more than 500 Grand Prix starts, 47 wins and three drivers` world championships, Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button deserve the respect of being genuine race-winning contenders at this weekend`s British Grand Prix.
Honda are committed to Formula One and expect their relationship with McLaren to become a winning one despite current problems with the engine, according to the Japanese car company`s motorsport head Yasuhisa Arai.
