Storyline

It's the final two weeks of testing in Barcelona before the F1 season officially begins. Mission control is monitoring every aspect of the cars' and drivers' performance on track. Testing is a disaster. On day one, Fernando Alonso's car breaks down repeatedly due to oil issues and the engine is replaced overnight. On day two we ride with Stoffel to the track, his first day of testing as a fully-fledged McLaren driver. Stoffel finds the car difficult to manage and there are problems with the engine again. A second Honda engine is replaced and the engineers must fly out more units from Sakura, Japan. The press is going wild with stories of impending doom for McLaren and their partnership with Honda. By the end of the test, Honda has blown nine engines, one more than they are allowed to use for both cars during the entire season. The most the car has driven continuously, with the power turned down, is 11 laps. At this pace, the car will not even qualify for the race in Melbourne. ...
