Spanish Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso of McLaren Honda had to abandon the Mexican Grand Prix after the first lap due to a failure in his car, local media reported Sunday.

Alonso made radio contact with his team to alert about an electric failure in his car.

The Spanish driver had run just one lap at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, the Mexican circuit located in the eastern region of Mexico City.

Just moments after the race began, Alonso called his team and later he went to the pits area and abandoned the race.

Alonso said that "we had an electric problem since Saturday and we did not have time to solve it."

"The question was to run or not to run the race. We decided to run as a sign of respect for the fans. In the first lap we have won four or five positions, but then we did not have more power," he added.
