"I am very happy with the performances of our drivers this year.”

Judging by the results then, Eric must be utterly distraught at the pile of cack they have built for the drivers. Considering that Raikkonen, Massa and Rosberg were missing at the end, to describe 4th and 7th places as 'better than expected' rather shows a very low expectation from the team.

I don't see Mclaren progressing much more, everybody is improving and for Mclaren to make the quantrum jump that is needed is I believe beyond the team at present. They may well get a few more good placings but to suggest that they could win a GP or compete at the front on a regular basis is something that is only in RDs head. I'm sure Button will drive the car to it's limit but that limit is way behind the best cars and will stay that way. The only way a large improvement will come is from the new staff arriving who will hopefully have a rather better handle on car design than the present crew. Honda will be expecting a top car and I hope that Mclaren can produce it.

What I can't get my head around is that it seems they have just realized that upgrades are actually necessary !
Off topic, I think because of JBs previous connections with Honda, (and his Japanese partner) he will stay with McLaren next year.
