Highly unlikely I'm afraid, miracles only happen in your dreams not in reality. What needs to happen is somebody in Mclaren's design team actually finding out what is wrong with their car and then making the right changes to correct it. Since that has'nt happened in the first half of the season I'm not very confident it will happen in the second. I feel sorry for the drivers knowing that they have to drive that heap for the rest of the season, so much for Perez challenging for the championship and Button ditto, better keep on dreaming...........

The car may not be the best but it is good in race trim. The main problem is that you have 2 drivers that can't qualify, remember last year when Button was just scraping into the top 10, whereas Hamilton was on the front row or that Perez was out qualified by Kobayashi? They are then stuck in the midfield so very difficult to blame, just the car.

@ Gilles

No. Sorry, but no. How often, in F1 specifically do we see that drivers can come through the field to win? Mark Webber springs to mind, winning from stone last.

The car is a DOG!

Though it is promising to see that Button and Perez were in the top 3 best climbers in this last race behind Alonso, both climbing 4 spots from their grid position.

Mclaren have a record of loosing the very best employees in f1 over the years and when you see names like Newey, Pat Fry, Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and now Paddy Lowe you just cant afford to loose these type of talent and expect to win things.

JB facing up to his first winless season since 2008 will be tough for him. He has however doubled his career win tally since he joined McLaren. The team facing up to their first winless season since 2006, a season where they still managed to finish third in the WCC.

"For Button to have won his one and only WDC was nothing short of Miracle ! ! !"

Are you talking about Jenson Button? You know, the driver with the most points for the last 4 years besides Vettel and Alonso?

You know, the driver who has more wins in the last 4 years than any other driver on the grid except Vettel.

Is that the driver you're referring to when you say it was a miracle that he won a WDC??
