The Mclaren seems to be well off the pace of the fastest cars, I was hoping that they would have a good car from the off but it look as if they are behind again, why they cannot design a good car from the off is one of lifes big mysteries. By the time they get up to speed Mercedes, Redbull and probable Ferrari will be well ahead and others will be near equal to them.
Australia was a bit of a force dawn and a repeat will depend on tactics and luck which is a shame for two good drivers who should have a better car under them.
