Had hoped Honda would had done better than what its currently offering in testing- very disappointing to say the least and Alonso getting frustrated.

Both drivers retired in the Chinese GP due to technical problems.

Alonso is doing the Indy 500 instead of Monaco, he will almost certainly be replaced by Button.
Alonso is racing for the Andretti team in the US, they use Honda engines and the car will be branded a McClaren.

Watch this for a move by Alonso for next season, his McClaren contract ends this season.

Button confirmed for Monaco.

Alonso turns 36 this year, no way will this ex-world champion want to stay at McLaren-Honda if they fail to deliver.

Also  Alonso wants to do Le Mans as well as he would like to emulate Graham Hill's trio of F1 World Champion, Indy 500 winner and Le Mans winner.

Eddie Jordan's predictions on Sunday were that McClaren would be using Mercedes engines next year, something that was put about a couple of weeks ago.
He also said that Alonso, whose contract runs out this year, would be driving for Renault.
Jordan is often right in his predictions.

Alonso managed 12th place in Spain after qualifying 7th so some improvement.
His free practice incident when his car failed half a lap out the pits was significant.
When hoisted up to be removed from the track the amount of fluid that poured from the car was considerable and unbelievable. This from an engine that would have been extensively run on a test bench back at the Honda factory.
Is there something basically wrong with the installation?
These sort of basic errors should not happen when you consider the amount of money being spent.
Where will Alonso be next year,  Ferrari ?

Ferrari seems like a good shout, Kimi Räikkönen's contract at Ferrari is up at the end of the season.

I don't think Alonso left Ferrari on good terms, but then I don't think he parted McLaren on good terms either.

Button and Vandoorne crashed out of the Monaco GP. Tragically, had Vandoorne finished the race he and McLaren-Honda would've collected their first points of the season.

Alonso retired from the Indy 500 due to engine problems.

Alonso retired from the Indy 500 due to engine problems.

Sadly, also using a Honda engine although different to the F1 version.
Honda have produced very successful racing engines in the past, witness the successes of McClaren and Williams in the past. Why can't they produce a F1 engine now that works ?

Sad to say that since company founder Sochiro Honda died in early nineties Honda have lost both their mojo and their direction.  Company has probably been taken over by non-engineers and designers with no vision.  Honda is still the few independent car makers who do not share models and parts with other makers,  but don't know how long for.
Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot
