Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button face more grid position penalties at this weekend`s Italian Grand Prix where Honda is expected to fit their McLaren cars with more new engines, their ninth change this season.
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.
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.
