Fernando Alonso finished more than 1.5s clear of his nearest challenger on an encouraging first day of in-season testing for McLaren at Silverstone. The Spaniard, who failed to score a point at the British GP despite the MP4-31s upgrades, set a 1:31.290 in the morning session before a downpour during the lunchtime break had teams ducking for cover in the pits.The pace was so impressive that Alonsos benchmark would have earned him sixth on the grid had he set it in Q3 last weekend. However, it was set on the supersoft tyre, a compound which wasnt then available to drivers. Leading the chasing pack was Mercedes youngster Esteban Ocon, who stuck to the medium compound for the entire morning and completed 80 laps, eventually adding 43 on a wet afternoon to rack up the most of the day.Alex Lynn enjoyed another test for Williams in third while current GP3 leader Charles Leclerc, fresh from his F1 debut in practice for Haas, finished fourth for Ferrari. Their times, however, were some three seconds shy of Alonsos best effort. See Red Bull test their newest safety device during mid-season testing at Silverstone Race regulars Carlos Sainz and Rio Haryanto finished sixth and ninth for Toro Rosso and Manor respectively while Pascal Wehrlein ran in eighth in the 2014 Mercedes car, testing 2017 tyre components and materials for Pirelli.But by far the most fascinating, if not surprising, story of the day came from Red Bull, who completed an installation lap with the Halo fitted to Pierre Gaslys car at the beginning of the test.Despite pioneering the Aeroscreen concept, Red Bull tested the cockpit protection system - which Ferrari have trialled twice this season, most frequently in last weeks British GP P1 - despite Christian Horners recent criticism of the device.Full story: Red Bull run Halo at SilverstoneThe team principal said he wouldnt be voting the Halo, FIAs preferred head safety mechanism for next season, in for 2017 and that it shouldnt be rushed through. Force India deputy team boss Bob Fernley, speaking to Sky Sports News HQ on Tuesday, agreed with Horner - adding that he thought a driver could get hurt.We need to do a lot more work to understand that the Halo isnt going to create other problems, which I think it will do, he told Craig Slater. I think you could actually create other opportunities for injuries to drivers and therefore its not the right solution.Gasly, meanwhile, said the Halo looked a bit weird and that he believed Formula 1 should stay the way it is. Watch 10 of the 11 teams in action at F1s mid-season testing at Silverstone On slick tyres and in the dry, a flurry of activity at the start of the day saw Ocon, who is testing on both days for Mercedes because of their need to field a young driver, rush to the top of the timesheets. But the Frenchman, a reserve driver at Renault this season, was quickly leapfrogged by Fernando Alonso.The 34-year-olds fastest time came during a three-lap stint on the supersoft tyre, with Ocon concentrating on longer medium stints in the W07. Alonso eventually completed 105 laps and was by far the most experienced driver on display. In fact, by taking him out of the equation, the average age of the field was less than 20 years old.Nikita Mazepin, 17, and Santino Ferrucci, 18, helped lower that average age on their F1 debuts for Force India and Haas. Mazepin, a Formula Renault 2.0 driver finished fifth with a 1:34.521, with GP2 competitor Ferruci down in seventh. Sergey Sirotkin of Renault and Gasly propped up the field but the Red Bull youngster was plagued by a wiring problem all morning, only managing nine laps in the dry. When the issue was fixed and the engine was fired up again, the heavy rain had started.The torrential downpour was lengthy, if not as sudden as the shower that saw Sundays race start behind a Safety Car, and few teams ran on the full wet tyre. Conditions slowly improved but the track didnt dry out, while the afternoon session was bizarrely interrupted by a red flag when a piece of wood fell from the lighting gantry above the pit-straight. The two-metre long baton fell to the near-side of the track before being quickly removed - but it was certainly a safety scare.The first day of the second and final in-season test of 2016 finished with limited running on the intermediate tyre - though no one could get close to Alonso. The test concludes on Wednesday, with the green flag at 9am. See the full driver line-up here. Silverstone in-season test, day one1. Fernando Alonso, McLaren, 1:31.290, 105 laps2.

Jeremy Roenick Jersey . Watching them over the past year - and in some cases, two years - has given us a starting point for this seasons Craigs List.Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Nick Schultz picked up the game winner in the second period, while Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier scored in the third, as Philadelphia topped Winnipeg by a 5-2 count on Thursday. Wayne Simmonds and Chris VandeVelde also tallied for the Flyers, winners of three in a row and four of their last five. In his first start since Jan. 8, Steve Mason picked up his second straight positive result thanks to 36 saves. I feel really good. The injury hasnt been a problem which is great, Mason said of his knee issue which kept him sidelined for more than two weeks. More importantly I thought my game felt sharper than last night or the night before rather, which is obviously a positive sign as well. Mathieu Perreault potted both goals for the Jets, who have lost two straight since a five-game win streak. Michael Hutchinson took the loss despite 27 stops. Schenns one-timer from the bottom of the left circle off a dish from Simmonds at 4:12 of the third gave the Flyers a 4-2 advantage. Philly killed off a check-to-the-head minor to NHL leading scorer Jakub Voracek with 5:53 on the clock and Hutchinson dove well out of his crease to deny Matt Read again minutes later. Winnipeg elected to pull Hutchinson with more than two minutes to play, but Couturier hit the empty net with 1:41 remaining to seal the outcome. The hosts hit the scoreboard at 7:02, as VandeVelde converted a Michael Del Zotto rebound chance in ffront, then Perreault picked up his own rebound and beat Mason at 8:20.dddddddddddd. Simmonds tallied at 11:39, at the tail end of a power play off a slick set up from Voracek to make it 2-1, and Perreault unleashed a high wrister through a screen from the right circle on the advantage for a 2-2 tie at 16:57. I feel a lot better today, but at the end of the day, its not good enough for our team. We were sitting pretty in the standings. Then you lose two, so weve got to start winning. You cant wait until late March to get going. Schultz then lifted a puck over a scramble in the Winnipeg crease to put the Flyers back on top at 3:18 of the second. Both goaltenders stole the spotlight from there. Mason made three quick saves in close on Blake Wheeler during a Jets advantage midway through the period ahead of Hutchinson doing the splits to deny Read off a 3-on-1 break with under 3 1/2 minutes before the intermission. Game Notes Schultz snapped a 125-game goal drought dating back to April of 2013, which was three games longer than former Flyer Kent Manderville endured from 1999 for Carolina until a goal on Feb. 7, 2001 against the Penguins ... Perreault, who netted his eighth career two-goal game, hadnt scored since tallying four times against Florida on Jan. 13 ...
