F1 » Button insists McLaren gains will ‘take time’

Nothing new in these words, McLaren have done nothing but apologize and issue excuses right from the start. The truth is that neither they or Honda were anywhere near to being ready for this season. Fine if you are prepared to do all your development under the glare of publicity but don't expect anybody to have any great sympathy for you. F1 is supposed to be the World's premier racing series so people expect the best not a shambles which is what this project has been so far.

F1 » Button: GPDA survey might not change anything

Button shouldn't be too bothered, he won't be around to see any change in FI, he's only on a one year contact with an option for a further year that won't be taken up by Mclaren if rumours are correct. RD only too k him on because he was outvoted and will surely take the first opportunity to restamp his authority on the team. I would put money on Vandoorne or Magnussen being in the car next year and possibly before then.

F1 » Button insists ‘solid progress’ despite frustrations

There are already suggestions about that Button will not be in a McLaren next season. RD didn't want him in the first place and will feel he's made a concession having Button in the car this year. If Vandoorne wins GP3 I suspect he will leapfrog past Magnussen to take Button's drive. Makes sense, why pay Button £6M to drive an uncompetitive car when they can have Vandorne for next to nothing. Button's had his day sadly and once he's gone Alonso will gain true NO1 status again.

F1 » Honda still devising plan for engine token spend

Honda have clearly uderestimated the complexities of developing a power unit. With their experience one would have expected a more competitive effort, however the chassis seems to be lacking as well but that is always the case with Mclaren. I don't see any success for this venture before 2017/8 and that will only be if they get everything right. In addition the others will have moved on by then so they will always be chasing their tail.
