Any rookie replaces a fast vet and that team, at the outset anyway, will be weaker? This is a profound point? It verges on tautologically true. It barely makes the cut as an observation.

Polo, The best driver line up? You've done nothing but bad mouth Button all season!

As for McLaren being weaker, possibly in terms of qualifying pace but in terms of being a cohesive team they'll probably be far stronger.

Again we can look at Polo's strange outlook, who laughed at and called for Massa to be sacked all season, yet the team work between Alonso and Massa in a slower car ment that Ferrari beat "the strongest driver line up" in a far better McLaren to second in the WCC this year.

Oh I forgot that was all Whitmarsh's fault, right Polo?

I can understand perez not doing so well after he signed for McLaren, I think it's just nerves , but I guess we shall see what he's got in four months time. Like me, a lot of people I am guessing can not wait to see Lewis in a Merc, just to see how bad the car truly is, or if Michael just lost his game.

No way Perez as good as Hamilton but that does not mean you can right him off until its 4-5 races through in 2013 season.
McLaren needs to work on his temperament and his PR skills though.Off the track controversies will disturb the team.
For now folks are thinking (including me) that McL should have taken Hulk but lets see...its too early to judge perhaps

I think McLaren reacted too quickly. Not sure Perez was the right choice.

With Button only performing sometimes and Perez probably not scoring much, McLaren might be fighting with Force India in the constructors next year.
