F1 » Button: No reason to want to change

I don't believe it will be his choice, RD is clearly looking to get a top driver in a Mclaren ASAP maybe for next season. If Button does stay on I'm sure RD will insist that his pay is reduced to a much lower level, possibly pay by race and results. I'm sure that come 2016 Button will be gone and one of Alonso/Hamilton/Vettel will be safely esconced at Mclaren on a mega contract.

F1 » 2014 car ‘a laboratory’ for next year – Boullier

I thought they were supposed to be trying to win races, did they tell Button that this season was going to be used just for research? no of course not Boullier is just doing what he does best "Bullshitting" in an effort to cover up yet another below average season. It is highly likely that next season will be even worse for Mclaren as with a new engine and yet another crap chassis there will be no hiding place. Button would be better off out of it and F1. He has plenty of money and does pretty well in Triathlons, has a lovely lady and can't really need the hassle of driving uncompetitive cars year in year out.

F1 » Chilton may not have to pay for drive in 2015?

To be fair to Max he's probably no worse than many other pay drivers, he's not that much slower than Bianchi and Bianchi is being touted as a future Ferrari driver, however if Marussia have the money there are better drivers available and they may need two if Bianchi gets a better drive. Realistically Max's f1 career will not extend to getting a better drive because he is simply not good enough, he's one of a bunch of average pay drivers who's career's will only last as long as their money.

F1 » Hamilton calls for reliability improvements

I'm sure Mercedes are quite capable of making improvements and have already acknowledged that they need to improve reliability, Better I think for Hamilton to keep quiet, he has'nt won the championship yet nor has he outgunned Rosburg to the degree he makes out. The likelyhood is that it will go down to the wire, for what it's worth my money is on Rosburg!

F1 » EXCLUSIVE: Kamui Kobayashi Q&A Part 2

Realistically he has nowhere to go, most seats next season are booked and if they are not they will go to the drivers with the biggest bag of gold, sad fact of life that your actual talent is negated by having no backers behind you. Pay drivers come and go only as long as the money lasts and that won't change especially with new teams coming in with inadequate backing. I f I were a young and talented driver I would'nt bother with F1 unless I got a top drive, it does more harm than good to do several seasons scratching around in a crap team, just think how many talented drivers have disappeared over the years.

F1 » McLaren ‘threw it all away’ – Button

At least he's lead a GP this season even if it was in the wet, the car is no match for the others so he was never going to get antwhere near the podium once it dried out. I still think Button is out of Mclaren, maybe in a swop with Grosjean, there isn't much else available so it's either that or enforced retirement. I still think Alonso will go back to Mclaren but probably in 2016 after he's had a look at the Honda engine.

F1 » F1's summer break won’t halt McLaren momentum

While Mclaren may have improved so has everybody else and when you start so far behind you never catch up. It is halfway through the season now and if Mclaren have any sense they will start to concentrate on next year's car, they are not going to achieve anything this year so they might as well right it off and concentrate on supplying Honda with a decent car to put there engine in. In theory they have a very good chance of an advantage next season but i believe that once again their car will be below the standard set by Red Bull and Mercedes. Everybody says it takes at least 5 years to get a good team up to the required standard and Mclaren will be basically starting from scratch.Both the engine and car will need to be exceptional to get wins and if they are any less than that we can expect another dismal season from "the team with the winning mentality" . The days when Mclaren was that is back in the eighties and they might do well to remember that.
