BBC Sport - Fernando Alonso: McLaren driver pushes car to pits in Hungary

Push it! Alonso moves his McLaren

Fernando Alonso jumps out of his McLaren and pushes it back to the pits after breaking down during Hungarian Grand Prix qualifying.

The two-time world champion struggled on his own for a while, before finally being joined by marshals - only to be told when he got back to the pits that the rules forbade him from running again.

"I was not allowed to compete again after the car doesn't arrive by itself into the garage, so when I knew the rules I thought: 'Why did I push so hard?'" Alonso said with a rueful smile afterwards.

The Hungarian Grand Prix is live across BBC TV, radio and online this weekend.
