(cafetheology.org) – After the first round of the Grand Prix of Belgium 2017, Fernando Alonso was in a sensational seventh place. For a moment, the Spaniard "Best of the Rest" was behind the three top teams. But from then on, his race went downhill. He was then ruthless in the field because he was completely unimpressive with the Honda engine on the straights, and he finally had an engine problem that he had to finish the Grand Prix prematurely.
