F1 » Boullier: We have to believe that we can win


More bull**** and waffle from Boullier, all sportsmen believe they can win that's what they are in it for, problem for Mclaren is their very poor record of recent and the disasterous first test of the engine. If he thinks they will be good enough to compete next year he is deluding himself big time, it took Mercedes a long time to become competitive and most people in the know think five years is par for the course. I'm also inclined to think that Mclaren's problems with basic car design and aero won't have gone away overnight, if they were so wrong that Peter Promodu moves them in a different direction it will take time, in addition I don't believe the Honda engine will be anywhere near a match for Mercedes, they have a quantum advantage which everybody will struggle to match. I suggest Mr Boullier returns to France and has a good rest because he has a very busy year ahead of him.

F1 » Button: Having Alonso as my F1 team-mate means a lot


Could be the battle of 2015 it all depends on the car and engine, if it's good they will be very close, if it's bad Button will struggle and Alonso will drive it's wheel's off regardlesss. I have to say it's about time Mclaren produced a good car, thye have had a very poor run but it will need the Honda power unit to be both powerful and reliable not something that showed well in it's first test, but if anybody can do it Honda can so I'm really hoping that both Mclaren and Honda are at their very best.

F1 » Raikkonen: ‘Many reasons’ for Alonso dominance


There's one main reason of course and that's that Alonso is a far better allround driver better able to get the best out of a dog, Kimi is similar to Button, he must have the car entirely to his liking otherwise he's way off the pace. Given Vettel's problems this last season it will interesting to see which of them will cope better with another poor car, Alonso too will have to cope with a Mclaren not exactly the class of the field these last few years! It will be an intriguing contest allround.

F1 » McLaren fails to reach driver decision


There is clearly more going on at Mclaren than is immediately apparent, for instance there is talk of RD having to fight his corner in order to keep his position at Mclaren, it is said he needs to find backing to buy out one of his partners, Mclaren also need a lead sponsor. I imagine RD was hoping all this would come together and a decision on drivers could then be made and the entire deal Alonso and all could be announced at the same time. This clearly hasn't happened so we might just see a change at Mclaren that RD for one was desperate to avoid.

F1 » Stevens’ focus on F1 with Caterham, Marussia


He must be pretty desperate if that is his only options, while Caterham might make it to the grid they are using their 2014 car which was just about the slowest on the grid, Marrusia won't be around as all their equipment is up for auction and in the event of anybody buying it for next season it will be far too late for them to get on the grid. Quite why just about every up and coming driver wants to drive F1 is beyond me, it is by some way the most uncompetitive race series in the world and unless you are a lead driver in any of the top three teams you have absolutely no chance of ever winning a race let alone a championship. It shouldn't be like that but money is king and we can blame BE and the FIA for turning it into the farce it is today, with the grid shrinking at an alarming rate the situation will only get worse and I can see F1 developing into a major manufacturer only three car team series subsidised by a growing number of pay divers who's talent is questionable, perhaps that

F1 » F1: Palmer angry at lack of weight to GP2 title


The first point I would make is that no one has a god given right to drive in F1 regardless of their talent and there have and always will be dozens of drivers trying to reach F1 from various different backgrounds. Talent unfortunately is not the prime requirement, money is. F1 is in a bad way and has been run for the rich few for far too long and until that changes and drivers with the best talent get the first chance things will remain the same.
