Sportscars » WEC: Audi: A race can’t be won like this


They tend to change the rules when one team has a huge advantage as Audi have had for about 14 years, It's up to Audi to adapt rather than threatening to pull out. The championship needs more competitive cars especially in LMP1 if it is to gain credence as a proper World championship. The problem in the past has been that teams come in, win and then withdraw to bath in the glare of publicity, what we need is for Ferrari/Nissan/Jaguar etc to come in and then you would have 5 or 6 top LMP1 teams competing for the wins.

F1 » F1: McLaren delays driver decision


Their can only be one real reason for this further delay and that is that Alonso has still not signed on the dotted line. Whatever game Alonso is playing could lead to Button leaving F1 and or Mclaren ending up with egg all over their face. Button has stated that he might not sign a new deal even if it were offered, presumably he has other options but they must be outside of F1, however Porsche have denied talking to him and have in any case a full team of drivers as do Toyota and Audi. I can't see Button going to the graveyard of the DTM or Indy cars so his career might well be over. If he stays with or without Alonso just what sort of deal would RD offer him given that he clearly doesn't think much of Button who he once described as a "Playboy" Not a happy situation and one that has been handled appallingly by all management at Mclaren.

F1 » Button calls on McLaren to ‘fight hard’


The person who needs to fight hard is Button, if this is to be his last drive for Mclaren he needs to prove his worth to another team wherever that is. Hopefully it won't come to that although I rather believe the dye is cast. Mclaren are supposed to be bringing a large update as part of a package by their new designer, seems a bit pointless just for one race especially as most of their updates during the past two seasons have proved not to be updates at all.

F1 » Button: Money no issue in F1 future


This may all come down to who Alonso wants as his teamate, apparently he thinks Button should still be in F1 but does he want him as a teammate? we all know what happened when Hamilton gave him the run-around so I suspect not. What about Honda? Button has good connections with Honda and is known as a bit of a Japanphile if there is such a thing. It would be criminal if Button is pushed out of F1 but he appears to have no other option than Mclaren unless he takes a year out to see how the land lies. He says money is not a problem and that he needs to be in a winning team, not sure that there is an answer other than Mclaren.

F1 » F1: We are nowhere, says Button


Bad news for Button and before the conspiracy theorists step in I would say it's the first time Button has had a major technical problem that I can remember this season and it says a lot for him that he is so positive given his imminent removal from Mclaren, also it's very clear that Mclaren have still not sorted the car out after nearly a season's racing, one has to ask why. Is Alonso really going to make such a difference if next year's car is crap too? I don't think so, he will start to moan pretty quickly if things aren't going well and Magnussen equals or beats him.
