Common JB you and Mclaren have to get a win. Mclaren cant go through a season without a win as that has not happened since 2006 and although the 2013 car is a bit of a dog like the 2009 car the 2009 car had some victories with Kolva so come on Mclaren lets try and get a win at SPA.

It may well be cold and wet for McLaren but RBR, Ferrari, Merc and Lotus are expecting blue skies and sunshine.

And Whitmarsh is beginning to sound like he's after a job as a number 10 spin doctor.

mrfill, so you mean it was Lewis Hamilton who won those races in 2009 in a dog car? Well well well.

Whats really funny is that if Mclaren goes without a win in 2013 this would mean that the last time Mclaren went an whole season without a win was in 2006 with Kimi and Montoya as the pilots and this would coincide with the arrival and departure of one of the greatest English drivers ever.

I think you'll find Hamilton only won races in 2009 AFTER the team basically built him a new car. Don't even try and pretend that he won in the same car as he started the season with!

Think you should check Hamilton's radio traffic from Turkey 2009 - I'll spare you the whining and moaning, but it basically said build me a new car or we won't win.

Really sounds like someone who can win in a bad car!

That is not what I meant even though it was obvious as the team had only 2 drivers and if one didn't win, chances are the other one did.
What I meant was that your statement about Kovi winning in 2009 was drivel. And it was.
