Alonso furious with 'difficult to understand' penalty in Japan

De Ferran sees Suzuka as positive for McLaren

As the pair approached the final chicane on lap one, Stroll pushed Alonso onto the grass, with the Spaniard then driving across the gravel to rejoin the circuit instead of using the escape road. They finished 14th and 17th respectively. He believes the lack of consistency from the race stewards when it comes to penalizing drivers for their errors is what makes F1 bad.

18th and 19th is McLaren's worst qualifying of the season, but they are unlikely to start in those positions, with several drivers receiving penalties for various infringements.

"Even when the driver comes to apologise, I think it's hard to understand the decision", Alonso said after the race. You are braking on the outside at the last corner, and one guy didn't see you and came here to apologise after you go on the gravel and you get the penalty.

"He didn't see me", added the Spaniard, who leaves F1 at the end of the season, and who has been a critic of the direction the sport is heading.

Talking after the race Stroll explained the incident, "With Fernando, I just went around the outside of 130R, I got on the grass and then back on the racing line, we made some contact and then he just went straight on, so we both got penalties". He is keen to take on a new challenge, one which will allow him to compete again for race wins and world championships. "It's the way it is".

Time Is Running Out To Control Climate Change, U.N. Report Says
But those past predictions appear to have been far too conservative (a common critique of IPCC reports in general). For instance, by 2100, global sea level rise would be 10 cm lower with global warming of 1.5°C compared with 2 °C.

"I just wanted to say no hard feelings over the first lap", Stroll said of his conversation with Alonso.

However, Alonso was not happy about the penalty insisting he had no other option but to leave the track, and argued he should not have got the penalty after Stroll had accepted it was his fault.

Stroll was handed two points on his superlicence, taking his tally for the rolling 12 month period to six.

The Spanish driver was also awarded one penalty point, while Stroll - who later apologised to Alonso - received two. Alonso is leaving F1 at the end of the season, having grown exhausted of the uncompetitive machinery he has been given since his return to McLaren in 2015.
