F1 » Magnussen praises McLaren for P4

Nick101, i'm well aware of the facts, but Button is paid a huge amount of money to be Mclarens lead driver, he has been openly warned by RD to pull his finger out and has failed to make any real improvement, which is no great surprise given his past record, his age is against him and he has never been a favourite of RD so he probable has a mountain to climb to be seen to be making the effort. Of late I have thought that Button when interviewed has shown that he is well aware that he is in the last chance saloon, he has seemed downbeat and resigned and he has'nt been afarid to criticise RD which would seem like a death wish to most people. It's also an open secret that RD wants Alonso back and if that happens Button will be on the scrapheap, a great shame as i've always been a fan but at least he has a championship and a huge bank balance to enjoy. The only light i see at the end of this particular tunnel is a direct swop with Alonso a s Button had talks with Ferrari and has said he wou

F1 » Boullier: McLaren experience shining through

It's a pity that Mclaren did'nt use some of their so called expeirience to design a good car in the first place, we then would'nt be having this continuing bleeting about how much they are improving and how they get the best out of a crap car. Despite all this "talking up" of their performances they have of course achieved very little for a long time, a few race wins is all they have to show for it and one drivers championship in 2008 and a constructor's as long ago as 1998 I think, not really the performance of a leading team. It remains to be seen if the second coming of RD has any real effect.

F1 » 'Hamilton unbeatable if head in right place'

Button could be slagging off Hamilton but he's not he just saying what most of us realise, that Hamilton in the right frame of mind is the quickest out there. "right frame of mind" is the important bit, he makes silly mistakes, plays silly games, wear's silly hats and has a silly dog and an extremely overated girlfriend, on the other hand Rosburg gets on with the job with no bull**** and stupid remarks or excuses, I know who my monies on!

F1 » McLaren increasing upgrades following progress

I don't see Mclaren progressing much more, everybody is improving and for Mclaren to make the quantrum jump that is needed is I believe beyond the team at present. They may well get a few more good placings but to suggest that they could win a GP or compete at the front on a regular basis is something that is only in RDs head. I'm sure Button will drive the car to it's limit but that limit is way behind the best cars and will stay that way. The only way a large improvement will come is from the new staff arriving who will hopefully have a rather better handle on car design than the present crew. Honda will be expecting a top car and I hope that Mclaren can produce it.
