F1 » Button: More power won’t make McLaren front runner

I beginning to sense a lot of contradictions coming from everybody at McLaren, if more power won't make the car more competitive then perhaps we are starting to get to the bottom of the problem, perhaps the chassis is not very good either which won't surprise anybody given their recent record. Either way there's a lot of talk and not much else and talk never won anything.

F1 » Button left frustrated as McLaren gremlins return

Not sure why he is fustrated he knows what the situation is, the engine is down on power at present and now the truth is coming out about the chassis which is usual McLaren, not competitive and lacking downforce, I'd like a £1 for every timeI 've heard that about a McLaren over the past couple of years! I sure he knows to put up and shut up, he's got a drive when nobody else was interested and he's still being paid megabucks compared with mere mortals.

F1 » Alonso: Button DNS underlines McLaren work in progress

There is a long way to go, their reliability problems are not behind them and the car has not run with anywhere near full power whatever that is, I think it will be well into next season before we see any real improvements and by then there will beyet another new Mclaren and probably new power unit from Honda. Honda have underestimated what needed to be done and Mclaren have overestimated how good Honda would be and they don't meet in the middle.

F1 » Button happy with progress despite result

There sems little doubt that Honda in particular along with McLaren have totally underestimated what was required to be competitve in F1 these days. Button's at the end of his career and was lucky to get the drive given that RD has never rated him so you can't expect him to rock the boat, however Alonso who has moved to McLaren specifically to win another championship before he retires is less likely to keep quiet if this situation does not improve extremely rapidly. It seems at the moment that they make their excuses before each race, surely a strange situation for a once championship winning team.
