At the moment it looks that Lewis has made the right decision to leave McLaren. Vodafone too will be leaving them, and I red somewhere that Mercedes looks to hide some technical information to them about the V6 engines in order to keep their secrets safe from Honda engineers for the McLaren-Honda of 2015. Troubles everywhere for Whitmarsh and McLaren at the moment. Yes is true that Ferrari had similar problems with their car last year and after four races they found a way to solve most of them and fight for the title till the end...but Ferrari had two advantages. First of all it was the Mugello test before the Spanish GP. Second, they had a driver in Fernando Alonso that McLaren lacks at the moment. But some way I believe that McLaren will win some races and save their honour this year.

Well there's no copying Lewis Hamilton's setup to help out Button this time around.

But there's still a bit of hope, since Sergio and Jenson usually come into their own on race day itself.
