continued.........In 2009 Mclaren had a completely different aero philosophy form all the teams. The way their front wing directed the air-flow to the air of there car differed from the other front-runners. As it turned out it was seriously inferior and they had to copy the other front running teams to get back to the front......

continued..........In 2011 pre-season testing Mclaren were slow and unreliable. It wasn't until they copied Red-Bull exhaust system sys just before Australia that they magically became competitive. They used their get out of jail-free card on that occasion. And for this year, all the other front running teams went with evolutions of their cars(unlike Mclaren), heck Red-Bull have been doing it from 2009 on onwards and have managed to win 3 titles on the trot. And once again Mclaren have gotten it fundamentally wrong.

It's only 1 race into the season and everyone is writing them off already.. Ferrari were in the same position this time last year and look what happened.. Bit early to jump to conclusions. No denying Hamilton is a loss tho. He is super quick.

@Ben

You really don't like to read do you?

I said Button came 3rd, as in the WDC. I mentioned nothing about BAR coming anywhere in the WCC.

In 2004 Button was team leader and in his second year at BAR. How exactly is it that you think he had no hand in the car?

The Brawn of 2009 was a Honda simply with Brawn written on the side. I suggest you do some homework before shooting off at the mouth - you are looking more and more stupid every time you post.

Sour grapes on Coulthard's part. Nothing wrong with the car (probably best on the grid), all they need is a driver (which they dont have). If they had Raikkonen, he would've won for them. Simple really.
