F1 » Spanish Grand Prix 2013: 'Whatever we do will be difficult' - Button


Things weren't looking any better for McLaren this weekend in Spain, after Jenson Button failed to make Q3 - although Sergio Perez was a surprise top ten contender.

Sam Michaels is a poisoned chalice. Wherever he goes the team turns to s**t. Mac had better get rid quick or they'll end up at the back of the grid.

I was actually surprised in the 1st few races that Button quite easily looked to have the measure of Perez as I expected Perez to be quicker at least in qualifying...

Maybe we´ll start seeing that from now on though as Perez is getting used to the team and the car.

I have answer for Mclaren. Hire James Key he is one of best engineer in F1 but big team has ignore his talent.
He turned Force India team from bottom to middle field team with small budget.
He turned Sauber team from rank just above the 3 very low budget teams to able to challenge big budget Mercedes team.
His achievement in low budget team show he is one of the best Engineers compare to current successful Engineers who work with big budget for the team like Red Bull, McLaren, Lotus and Mercedes team.
I believe James Key will change uncompetitive McLaren car to challenge for World Championship in short period again.
There's no hope of returning Bridgestone and Michelin to F1 in near future unless what they get what they want from FIA.
Tires quality will be same for next year.

Modern F1 has become a sham of the sport it once was. All we want to see are the best drivers in the best cars at the top of their game. With no in-season testing, teams can no longer iron out problems and be as competitive as they might be if they could do that. At one time, teams practiced Thursday, Friday then qualified Saturday, could work on the cars the night before the race, and even had a morning warm-up before the race!

It's become a nonsense! I hate DRS, I can't stand these ridiculous tyres, the lack of testin is a joke!
