Why can't they just design a car that's at the front(or near) from the 1st race like in the good "olden" days of 2007-08???

I mean what's the point catching the Red Bulls by mid season, they have collected enough points by then to stay on top coz McLaren only planning on matching them not being faster...

Neale might be happy with that but I'm as a McLaren supporter not! C'mon McGuys pull your acts together!

Another post where McLaren build up a story so they get the Vodafone machine in the headlines for the sponsors.
They are way off the pace of the RedBulls, Mark doesn't have a worry in the world other than Fernando and Vettel...where's Lu Lu? Probably trying to get in front of Jenson. Hamilton needs to beat that man before he or the team even think about chasing down a RedBull car. And the McLaren dribble goes on and on and on...

Sure they closed 2.5 but that car was a complete dog, I'd say finding 1sec when the car is more competitive and the opposition is so quick is a harder task.

Williams were struggling in the late 80's, along came Newey and they started winning. Then Newey left and they began losing. Mclaren were struggling in the mid 90's, along came Newey and they started winning. Then Newey left and they started losing. Red Bull were struggling in the Mid noughties, along came Newey and they started winning.

Perhaps Mclaren think they might turn around a long term trend, but I doubt it!
