McLaren is set to start from the back of the grid at Mexican Grand Prix after multiple changes on both cars.

 

Fernando Alonso will use 11th engine this season after difficulties he had during US Grand Prix race last weekend. That means he will drop of 10 grid places, but the Spaniard could also get an extra five for a gearbox change, too.

 

Meanwhile, Jenson Button get 10 places grid penalty because he will use latest specification power unit, same as Alonso used in Austin. He will also get another 10 place because he will have yet another new engine fitted on Friday evening ready for qualifying and the race.

 

Anyway, McLaren was prepared to struggle in Mexico, as the very fast track at high above sea level is not suited well for the MP4-30.
