Yes. If you're looking for Alonso, he was not invited.
Is this speculation , your opinion, or official that he was not invited? Do you have an official link somewhere that says he was not invited by Honda on purpose?
Honda launches a list of guest pilots. You can see it here: http://www.honda.co.jp/enjoyhonda/hrtd/2017/driver/

With a message below that says. "Pilots may be subject to change without prior notice."

About Alonso, we will never know the truth.

They still don't seem to know what they are doing. Three years active in F1, three project leaders. It says it all really. The magical spec 4.0 was probably not as good as aspected. :lol:

Just want to point out that that is the poster's interpretation of past statements, it's nothing to do with the content of the current story on autosport (as usual also available at motorsport.com by the way).

Mods, I think it's about time this thread was closed down. It's been going round in circles for ages now anyway....
In 2007 I had the chance to go to a meet-and-greet with an F1 test driver. I decided not to as I didn't think he'd even amount to much...he was the BMW Sauber test driver and his name was Sebastian Vettel...

There's also a good read on Auto sport but it's for subscribers only. But it highlights the failures on a more technical side

Yet technically, we're still in 2017 for 2 1/2 weeks to pass.
