F1 » Button welcomes Boullier appointment

Button really has to say that I would have thought, he's hardly going to say I don't want this bloke Boullier here. He knows RD means business, serious business, RD's had enough of the Whitmarsh years with underperformance, mistakes, bad pit stops, wrong strategies etc etc, he want's Mclaren back at the top and he's making sure he has the right people to do that. Button neads a very strong season with Alonso lurking in the background, there will not be any room for sentiment, another season of poor qualifying and lacklustre race drives will see Button consumed to history. I hope that does'nt happen as I'd like to see him win another championship, the ball's in his court.

F1 » Ecclestone doubts Haas F1 bid

Typical Bernie, playing politics as usual. He clearly does'nt want Haas to be sucessful because he wants his choice to get the vote. One week he's saying I only want ten teams the next week it's all about customer teams. At the end of the day he will have what he has because there are several teams on the brink as it stands and unless there is an effective cost cap no new teams will want to be involved. When is someone going to wake up to the realities, the top four teams spending £150M/£250M does'nt make for exciting racing if the rest have only a fraction of that sort of money.

F1 » Button backs Dennis return

Button certainly knows which side his bread is buttered but needs to watch his back as Ron Dennis has never spoken well of Button comparing him to an underachieving playboy a few years back. Also with Mclaren attempting to woo Alonso back to the fold it could well be Button's swansong this season unless he's prepared to drive for one of the mid grid teams like Massa.

F1 » No title sponsor but bigger budget for McLaren

Given Mclarens apalling 2013 season it does'nt surprise me that they do not have a title sponsor. It may be that something was lined up and then withdrawn when the sponsor got cold feet or possibly they are waiting to see if Mclaren recover this season, they then might come in for 2015 when Mclaren become Honda powered. Either way they are not going to be short of money by most peoples standards.

F1 » McLaren takes key step towards 2014 preparation

Good news indeed, Mclaren need a good start to the season and I want to see Button in a competitive car, he will then have no excuses. He still needs to sort his qualifying but i suspect it is too late for that and we may well see his new teamate outqualifying him on a regular basis. I think Magnussen will come in with a clear mind on what he needs to do while Button will be struggling with a perceived lake of balance/grip/ aero efficiency or what have you. Could be very interesting!

F1 » Horner: Female in F1 a matter of time

A pretty meaningless remark from Horner really, we have yet to see any woman in a competitive car for a start and until that happens we will never have a meaningful comparison. Dozens of men have got into F1 for whatever reason and have never had a car capable of running at the front and look what has happened to most of them, they get kicked out or fade away as the money runs out. It might happen one day and I might win the lottery one day as well! Thats all you can say.
