They suspected a problem and wanted to check the car, which lasted more than they expected. So, they had to wait checks to be finished.

@InsideFerrari explains what went wrong for Alonso: "Not a good start of the second day of the session. Fernando stopped on track due to an electric problem. Anyway, the issue has been solved.

sarahholtf1: Fernando Alonso has just spoken to the media while the mechanics work on solving mechanical issues that have halted his session. Alonso says: "We expect Red Bull to be very competitive. But there is a lot to come from Ferrari as well so we'll see."
