F1 » McLaren-Honda aiming high in 2015


I would have thought that it was given that every team has high expectations, that's what F1 is supposed to be, the best. Trouble is usually only one team manages that each season and with the huge advantage Mercedes has this season I can't see that disappearing overnight. If I was EB or RD I would be keeping my gob shut given the mess they have been in for several years. They will quickly find that sacking JB and signing Alonso is not the panacea that they would be hoping for. The start was a disaster and thinking that they might actually have a chance of winning the first race of next season is delusion of the first order. In order to win constantly in F1 you need to have a huge advantage as Brawn/RedBull/Mercedes have had over the past few years and I simply do not think Mclaren are capable of that in the short term.

F1 » Button: ‘I’m not done yet!’


I don't believe Button has much choice, Ron Dennis has made it pretty clear over the past few days that they don't want Button anymore, In fact their driver lineup might well turn out to be Alonso/Vandoorne rather than Magnussen. Since Button wants to continue in F1 and wants to win again his only realistic hope is that somebody in a top team get's injured and he gets called up as a replacement, other than that perhaps taking a year out to see if anything turns up however unlikely that is. Now that Tom Kristensen is retiring there would be a seat at Audi but i don't believe Audi would be interested in Button especially as there is talk of them pulling out. Another possibility is three car teams but would Button want to drive say a third Ferrari, I doubt that very much. He has been treated apallingly by Mclaren but Ron Dennis has never been a fan and is just exercising his prejudices. I just hope Button is sitting around at the end of next season thinking I'm glad I did'nt have that dr
