Fernando Alonso 'embarrassed' by McLaren pace at Japanese GP

McLaren's Fernando Alonso vents his frustration at racing with a "GP2 engine" and describes the car's performance as "embarrassing" over team radio at the Japanese Grand Prix.

The two-time world champion marked the 10th anniversary of his first world title by finishing 11th in Suzuka in a race dominated by his former team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

Alonso's team-mate Jenson Button described racing in Japan as feeling like a "samurai without his shield and sword."
