For his home Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso could not have got off to a worse start to his weekend, with the McLaren Honda Formula 1 Team racer experiencing an engine problem after just three corners of his out lap on Friday morning.
"A lovely day", he declared, beaming in front of his adoring home fans at the Circuit de Catalunya, where he won his last Formula One race, with Ferrari, four years ago.
"Conditions were quite tricky, quite windy, but my auto was always giving me confidence that I was able to push 100 percent".
"For me, it was a good qualifying for us and P7 is a gift so we'll see what we can do tomorrow".
"I feel confident that tomorrow, when we'll put everything together, we'll be in a more or less competitive position and hopefully we can be close to the others".
The two-time world champion is having the most frustrating season of his long career. "It looks like it will be between them and us", Vettel said. "Yesterday I was feeling quite comfortable and confident in the auto and everything was moving in the right direction", Vandoorne said.

Otherwise, veteran lawyer Richard Sprague said, "it's nearly like inviting drivers of vehicles and cars to drive recklessly". The NTSB investigation said he was a train enthusiast who had good knowledge of the speeds and tracks he was operating on.
Only the previous day, the 35-year-old said he would only stay with the team if they gave him a auto capable of fighting for wins.
He spoke alongside team director Eric Boullier and Honda F1 boss Yusuke Hasegawa, both looking relieved to not have to again explain why their cars have taken a step back.
This new damage - during the morning session - and poor performance during the afternoon, marked the continuation of McLaren-Honda's disastrous start to the season in terms of reliability and performance. With its rougher surface and tricky curves, the track gives slower cars like his McLaren a fighting chance. The race is tomorrow, the points they give tomorrow, we need to maintain this position if possible and take some points home.
"The points is the main target", he said. Alonso has already made a decision to try his luck at the Indianapolis 500 instead of the Monaco GP this month.
"I will race in the Indy 500, one of the biggest races in the world". Mechanics hurriedly replaced his car's engine with the one Bottas had used through the first four races, including last round's victory at the Russian GP. To fight for seventh place in Monaco?
