F1 » Button: Every area of McLaren car needs improving


After all the rhetoric this season the truth is now starting to emerge, after blaming Honda for a less than successful power-plant it appears that once again McLaren failed to produce a decent chassis, something they tried to keep a lid on by blaming Honda for the cars lack of performance. If next season proves little better than this I can see this partnership falling apart and I rather suspect that RedBull have their eyes on Honda for 2017 and beyond as their Tag Heuer Renault can only be a stopgap until something permanent comes along Think of it a Redbull chassis together with a fully competitve Honda powerplant might even worry Mercedes.

F1 » Alonso perplexed by Dennis ‘sabbatical’ claim


Smoke and mirrors come to mind, a strange thing to say but RD always has an agenda, perhaps he starting to worry what with all of McLarens sponsors leaving like rats departing a sinking ship that the money is starting to run out. A year of not having to pay Alonso might save a few bob but why not Button as well, he had a pay rise! It also rather suggests that RD knows next years car is not going to be much better, so why not put a cheaper or two cheaper drivers in until such time as the car is competitive if ever.

F1 » McLaren uses Abu Dhabi GP as early start on winter tests


107SS2009:
theoldgitspeaks: The real problem is the powerplant and they won't be testing anything new on that front. and in addition the car is so slow I wonder if any of the aero updates can be that relevant when the car is several hundred horsepower down. All teams develop continuously so they are not really gaining anything much. The crunch will come at the start of next season when the new powerplant will or will not be competitive, no amount of development can make up for the power deficit they have run this season and that is not going to change.
“And that is not going to change” How come you are so sure?.
Aero and other development cannot make up for a huge power deficit and never will, stop nitpicking its getting boring

I was inferring to aero and other development not the powerplant,
