However, Konerko struggled in his
Posted on 8:58pm Jul 5, 2017
A massively frustrated Fernando Alonso believes McLaren would have secured the first Q3 appearance of their Honda reunion had Q2 run its normal course. Raekwon McMillan Youth Jersey . Alonso was heard expressing his annoyance over the radio when he was informed he would not have time for his second flying lap, after a red flag had been thrown for Nico Hulkenbergs flying wheel.Argh, argh, argh, the Spaniard groaned as he made his way back to the pits in 12th place, having missed the chance to set a time on new supersoft tyres. Massively frustrated today, Alonso later told Sky Sports F1. I think the car has the potential to be in Q3. Both McLarens were competitive.We didnt use the new tyres, we didnt use the full engine power, just waiting for that lap to be in Q3 and we didnt even open the lap, so that was frustrating. Nico Hulkenbergs Chinese qualifying comes to an abrupt end after the front left tyre of his Force India comes off and hits the safety barriers. But despite the frustration, Alonso admitted there were positives from the day too given that even Q2 appearances were a rarity for McLaren during their troubled first year back with Honda in 2015.We were aiming to pass Q1 a few races ago, and now we are frustrated to not be in Q3, so definitely the car is growing and we are moving in the right direction, he added.Chinese GP Qualifying reportAlso, we have free choice of tyres for the race, so lets take advantage of that and hopefully we finish the weekend on a high.Although denied the chance to improve their grid positions themselves by the Force India-triggered red flag, Alonso and Jenson Button do move up one position apiece on Sundays grid after stewards gave Hulkenberg a three-place penalty.Stoffel Vandoorne is the only McLaren driver to score points so far this year after the teams reserve stood in for Alonso in Bahrain, although the Spaniard and Jenson Button have both suffered a race retirement apiece so far.  Alonso, who has said he will manage the pain that remains following the rib injury he sustained in his massive Melbourne accident, is optimistic he will be able to open his account on Sunday.Points are the target - how high is impossible to know, he said. Yesterday we were not completely happy with the race pace, we were not super fast. We made a lot of changes in the car so lets see if we are more competitive and we can score more points than we think.Watch the Chinese GP on Sunday - LIVE ONLY on Sky Sports F1.

Only it wasnt the extended right pad of his old teammate Jonathan Bernier early in the final frame, it was James Reimer, who stole a night that was supposed to belong to the former King.Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - The Chicago White Sox placed pitcher Jesse Crain and first baseman Paul Konerko on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday. Crain is dealing with a right shoulder strain and hasnt pitched since June 29, when he gave up the eventual game-winning run in the eighth inning of a 4-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians. The move is retroactive to June 30. The hard-throwing right-hander, who turns 32 on July 5, owns a 2-3 record and a slim 0.74 earned run average over 38 games with the White Sox this season. Konerko had missed Chicagos last six games with a lower back strain before returning to the lineup for Tuesdays win over the Baltimore Orioles. However, Konerko struggled in his return, as the 37-yyear-old slugger went 0- for-4 with two strikeouts before landing on the DL. Charles Harris Womens Jersey. The 17-year veteran is batting .249 with seven homers and 30 RBI through 67 games with the White Sox this season. To fill the vacated roster spots, Chicago recalled third baseman Brent Morel and purchased the contract of pitcher David Purcey from Triple-A Charlotte. Morel played in three games with the White Sox earlier this season and went 2- for-9 with a stolen base and a run scored. The 26-year-old third baseman batted .283 with five homers and 40 RBI in 68 games at Charlotte. Purcey, who hasnt pitched in the majors since 2011, went 0-2 with a 3.03 ERA and three saves over 26 relief appearances at Charlotte.
