F1 » McLaren: 'Too early to bail out' on F1 2011 title

A true want to be F1 legend will still want to aspire to try and beat MS's 91 victories and 154 podiums. WDC decided, those victories are still won one at a time. Any other attitude doesn't deserve a ride.

@walrus - it is not that they should throw in the towel it is that they should just concentrate on race wins and see what happens. In their current position wins mean more than just racing for points.

@mark
That was exactly my original point that was disagreed with:
"A true want to be F1 legend will still want to aspire to try and beat MS's 91 victories and 154 podiums. WDC decided, those victories are still won one at a time. Any other attitude doesn't deserve a ride".
My point is/was: WDC being lost, concentrate on personal victories.
I guuess the bar set so high by Shumi invallidated my objective

Effort better spent on 2012 car. WDC is gone, and constructors will soon be wrapped up as well. Just do enough to keep 2nd in constructors.
