Alonso: Top teams still in "another league" to McLaren

"Making it into Q3 for the first time this season feels fantastic, and if you combine that with the fact we are at our home grand prix, it's a double benefit. We saved them with a lot of points on Sunday's with a little bit of luck and good races but from now we need to push the development and we need to bring new parts every single race".

Alsono was, however, optimistic about his McLaren team, despite a disappointing start this year, and was keen to talk about his sustained motivation. There were even talks about the team being able to challenge title-contenders Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull. Probably the downside of this position is still the gap - you know the top six they are still in another league and we need to keep chasing and closing that gap race after race.

The auto was not as fast as expected, especially in qualifying, and its top speeds were among the slowest on the grid.

"I'm attempting two world championships at the same time", he said, referring to F1 and the sports auto world endurance championship, which includes the classic Le Mans 24-Hours race.

"Every time I go training, every time I go to bed, I have one dream in mind and that is to win a race in Formula One and to win a world championship. winning is in my mind all the time".

The Briton raced with McLaren full-time between 2010 and 2016 before hanging up his helmet after a one-off appearance in the Monaco Grand Prix previous year as he replaced the Indianapolis 500-bound Fernando Alonso. "It's hard to see from the outside, but extremely proud and motivated every time you do a one-off performance".

Canadian Paxton no-hits Jays
All of that adds up to a game where the ball gets put in play less and less, making outings like Paxton's that much more possible. This was the sixth no-hitter for the Mariners franchise, and the first since Hisashi Iwakuma did it against Baltimore in 2015.

Alonso arrives in Barcelona sixth in the Drivers' Championship after finishing in the points in each of the opening four races, helping McLaren to their best start to a season since 2014.

Alonso is coming off a victory in the 6 Hours of Spa in the World Endurance Championship.

"Hopefully tomorrow we'll put on a good show for all the fans".

"The biggest thing here is how predictable everything is", he said. So that's something you need to take into account for future decisions. P13 in the last three qualifying (sessions) so it's definitely a step forward.

The longest gap between victories in Formula One history was set by Italian Riccardo Patrese, who went 99 races between his 1983 South African victory and 1990 San Marino triumph for Williams at Imola.
