F1 » Alonso throws support behind team-mate Button

Button is between a rock and a hardplace, if he stays at McLaren he will have to endure yet another season in a average at best car. If he goes to HAAS or Lotus as suggested he will still not have a winning car therefore he is unlikely ever to win another GP, also by the time the McLaren is competitive they will ditch him anyway as being too old. Much better to walk away with your head held high and sign up for a top LMP1 team where he has at least a chance of winning and adding to his career total.

F1 » McLaren-Honda urging Button to stay for 2016

What a turnaround, last year they messed him about, this year they can't wait to sign him up, who knows what he will do, he has his head screwed on the right way around so he will make the decision RD or no RD. If he stays it will be another season at the back of the grid so personally I don't see the point, much better to drive a Porsche LMP1 and have a real chance of winning than tool round fighting with Manor and Sauber and Maldonado of course.

F1 » Boullier seeks reliability cure for McLaren

Its a bit late for that now Eric, the season has been a huge and total disaster of a scale not seen in F1. Perhaps if Boullier had stopped talking bull**** earlier in the proceedings they might have moved on, but as it is the only thing moving is Button, their loss his gain. Sorry to see him go but he is a man in control of his life so he doesn't need RD buggering him about again.

F1 » Alonso produces ‘best Suzuka lap of career’, still only 14th

If this is the best they can achieve at this late stage in the season it rather suggests that they have run out of ideas and time to make the car more competitive, Button obviously realizes this and that is why he is about to leave. Next season will be no better unless they come up with a completely new powerplant and McLaren finally manage to design a chassis that is the best. Both of these are unlikely in my mind, Honda are so far adrift this season as to be a joke so I don't see the huge jump required to become competitive and Mclaren are way behind the game when it comes to aero and chassis development.

F1 » Button: If I stay in F1, it is with McLaren

If and it's a big if he stays at McLaren it can only be for the money, the car won't win next year and probable the year after. He therefore has a choice, drive a poor car for the money or if offered drive a top LMP1 car in which he can win. Like all drivers he has a huge ego and wants to win so it is up to him. I think he wants to race on but not at McLaren.

F1 » Boullier worries McLaren slump may drive sponsors away

Once again Boullier is stating the b....y obvious and they must be rueing the day they talked Honda into coming in before they were ready. In addition McLaren haven't had a title sponsor because RD thinks the team is worth a lot more than it is. No constructors championship for god knows how many years and one championship and lost superstar and years of mediocre cars doesn't exactly bring people running with bags of gold. As Williams have found once you are on the way down changing direction can take a very long time, I'm not at all sure that McLaren have the right people in place to drive forward the change that is needed, I rather fancy there will be big changes for next season, problem will be, do people want to work for RD with his appalling record on staff relations, I suspect not.

F1 » Manor: We are punching above our weight

I'm not sure that scrapping with McLaren is punching above ones weight, The Mclaren is by a country mile the worst car on the grid so not a very good car to compare with, the Toro Rossos were on the back of the grid due to penalties and are usually miles ahead of Manor and Mclaren. Maybe with proper money and a Mercedes engine they can get away from the back row but not anytime soon.
