What is your favourite part of the Albert Park circuit?

Alonso: McLaren can't be written off

Former McLaren driver Fernando Alonso has said that McLaren can't be written off heading into the 2011 season, despite a poor pre-season. Alonso has insisted that McLaren shouldn't be under estimated with the new MP4-26.
