It's a pity that Mclaren did'nt use some of their so called expeirience to design a good car in the first place, we then would'nt be having this continuing bleeting about how much they are improving and how they get the best out of a crap car. Despite all this "talking up" of their performances they have of course achieved very little for a long time, a few race wins is all they have to show for it and one drivers championship in 2008 and a constructor's as long ago as 1998 I think, not really the performance of a leading team. It remains to be seen if the second coming of RD has any real effect.

You can always rely on Eric brightening up a dull day with his wacky comments.

He could have a long career in radio/TV on game shows. A couple which come to mind are Would I lie to you? and I'm sorry I haven't a clue.

Definitely nor Mastermind though

Well, I guess Boullier's comments about Button aren't colored by contract negotiations like Ron Denis' recent negative commentary. When Button left Brawn and went to McLaren, I and everyone else thought that McLaren were on the upsurge. Then Martin Whitmarsh had to go and screw the pooch with his "brilliant" ideas about basically remaking the whole chassis in the last year of the formula. When are thee boobs going to give Button a decent car so he can win another W.D.C.? Button certainly has the talent, but the big question is does McLaren still have the talent?
Well, Mr. Denis, if you hadn't been a big player in the Ferrarigate scandal, maybe you could still be closely associated enough with the F1 team to give it some positive direction!

Experience playing nasty politics. The FRIC issue is a gross manipulation of the results by the FIA, the sort of BS that devalues the entire sport. SHAME on McLaren for being the first to take advantage of the situation.

Frankly, I always thought that McLaren should have left Boullier at Lotus! I do not believe that he is the man for this job. And anyone who speaks of McLaren and a top notch job in F1 has to be speaking in the past tense. Bruce may be spinning in his grave~!
