Mclaren-honda racer Fer­nando Alonso has hailed the im­prove­ment made by the squad af­ter an en­gine up­grade at Spa helped him to chal­lenge for larger points scores. De­spite start­ing from the back af­ter cop­ping a 60-place penalty for chang­ing com­po­nents, Alonso stormed through to sev­enth. “It was a good feel­ing; we had the pace this week­end, a lit­tle bet­ter than ex­pected given the cir­cuit that it is,” said Alonso. “Sev­enth is good points for the team and [to be] in the points, on a cir­cuit like this was un­think­able a cou­ple of months ago.”
