Alonso returned to the track for the final part of the session, completing only 57 laps, which was among the fewest of the 14 drivers who made it to the track. After ditching engine-suppler Honda over the winter and pairing up with Renault for 2018, the pressure is on the team to perform but so far pre-season testing has not gone to plan.

The 36-year-old is scheduled for just one more day in the car before the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, but appeared rather blasé about the matter, saying that he'd be ready to go to Australia tomorrow.

While most teams were progressing with their timetables, it was McLaren who endured a horrible day, as Stoffel Vandoorne began with an installation lap that saw the Belgian return immediately back to the pits to correct a battery failure caused by the power unit.

Alonso did get back out for the final few minutes of testing on Wednesday and Boullier believes McLaren's early teething problems are to be expected.

The Red Bull driver was fastest with a time of 1 minute, 18.047 seconds on new hypersoft tires, setting the best ever lap in Barcelona since the new track layout was introduced in 2007. "I'm not too stressed about the laps we lost today".

Williams also suffered a pit-lane stoppage, with Russian rookie Sergey Sirotkin grinding to a halt outside the Red Bull garage after lunch. As I said before it is better it happen here than in two weeks' time.

Both during last week's test and on Tuesday, there were small burn marks on the bodywork indicating peaks of temperature from the exhaust that were causing bodywork damage.

As a result, McLaren has completed just 95 laps this week, compared to 352 for Mercedes, and has slumped to the bottom of the cumulative mileage charts across the six days of running.

Of course, sensational headlines will do nothing for team morale, however, over the next two days the Woking outfit needs as much running as possible.

"I think this is more or less normal in every new car", he added.

"The issues we had are well under control but unfortunately we keep discovering small things every day".

"What we do ahead of (the season opener in) Melbourne is that we try and shake down all of the battery systems to make sure all of the stock that are going racing are in good shape", he told the formula1.com website.

"I don't care about McLaren".

The Formula 1 season opens on March 25 in Australia.
