F1 » First lap exit a turn-off for Button

Ever the politician, Button as usual being positive about a hopeless situation, probably his last season as RD wants Magnussen in the car for next year. Button is better off out of it as they are not going forward at all, still on the back of the grid, unreliable and well off the pace, 2016 will be little better and by that time Alonso will be throwing his toys out of the pram as well. Probably better to walk away with your head held high rather than put up with the bull**** that emanates from RD and Boullier. The fact that nobody else wants him shows how far F1 has declined, much better and necessary to have a pay driver of indeterminate talent than somebody who has done the job and still can.

F1 » Button takes test positives to his 16th British GP

Must be very depressing continually turning up to race knowing you will be at the back of the grid and unlikely to finish or even start the race. Rather looks as if it will be Button's last British GP so I wish him well and hope he can salvage something from his last few races. With McLaren so far off the pace it will be interesting to see how well Magnussen does next season assuming RD gets his way and boots Button out. They have a mountain to climb to overcome Mercedes dominance and I doubt that will ever happen, certainly not in the next couple of years anyway. Hopefully Button will get a top drive which can show his talents at there best although I rather think he will walk away altogether.

F1 » Button not looking for points after tough Friday

Hardly worth turning up really, McLaren seem to be going backwards at the moment regardless of any updates, it's clear now that the chassis is as bad as the powerplant. Almost certainly Button's last British GP so it's a shame that they have failed to improve, still on the back couple of rows. This cooperation will go down as one of the largest failures in the history of F1 whatever RD says.

F1 » ‘Traditional’ Vettel against Saturday race proposals

Back in the 70's I think there used to be a qualifying race on Saturday for the drivers that needed to qualify to get in the GP, at that time I seem to remember there were up to 40 odd cars trying to qualify for the GP. Not sure what this new proposal is, are they planning two races or a qualifying race to set grid positions, can't rally see the point of that. Perhaps one day we will see some sensible proposals to improve F1, not the usual lot of mumbo jumbo we get at the moment. Can it really be that the powers that be are so intellectually challenged that they are totally incapable of coming up with any sensible and realistic ideas?

F1 » Jules Bianchi’s father ‘less optimistic’ of son’s recovery

The sad reality is that neither Jules or Michael Schumacher is ever likely to recover as we knew them so i think it would be much more sensible and sensitive to leave the families to do what they feel is best. There are too many people out there who no nothing who keep coming up with so called information, I suggest that they put up and shut up and leave it to the people that know what they are talking about.

F1 » Ron Dennis brands Eddie Jordan ‘a village idiot’

While I'm no Eddie Jordan fan, RD being reduced to making snidy schoolboy remarks about him says more about RD than it does about EJ. RD has long had a huge ego and may have had good reason 20 years ago but sacking Whitmarsh was just a sop to his ego and McLaren now are a shadow of their former glory. RD is now following Christain Horner in openly questioning their engine supplier. Quite what he would do if Honda pulled out has yet to be answered. As for Susie Perry, she is just another manifestation of the BBC insisting on having a young woman fronting every sort of programme and DC while very knowledgeable is no Martin Brundle. Personally I only watch the start these days as the rest of the races are about as exciting as watching paint dry.

F1 » Alonso predicts worse to come for McLaren

It is difficult to see how McLaren can get any worse, 17 and 18th on the grid just in front of a team that has loose change for a budget, personally I think they are away with the fairies and the situation is descending into farce. I expect an abrupt parting of the ways between all parties at the end of the season. The facts are that every team is getting better and Mclaren are not matching that improvement let alone improving on it.

F1 » Alonso: We are slow...

Tell me something new please, McLaren are going backwards which is pretty amazing considering that they started at the back. A shame that this once great team is now a laughing stock, no wonder Button always has a rie smile on his face, at least he will be out of it come seasons end and we can all look forward to another season of RD and Boullier telling us how wonderful they are and how they are developing new parts and how each circuit doesn't suit their car and how hard they are all working and how..............................................................
