F1 » McLaren competitive from European rounds, says Boullier


Yet more bulls..t from Boullier! McLaren are in big trouble and with the pace of improvement in F1 McLaren will not catch up, they haven't in the past two seasons and they won't this season. Red Bull did'nt last year and they are light years better than McLaren at producing a competitive car. One day someone at McLaren will realise that you have to produce a good car from the off not try and improve a poor one, it doesn't work end of story! You simply don't have the time.

F1 » Button: 100 laps is like 1000 laps for us!


Still a long. long way to go, it looks like another season of playing catch up and never getting there for McLaren, I had hoped for much better after all the hype, but we know McLaren are very good at hype and not very good at producing a good car so I suppose it was to be expected. The facts speak for themselves, most of the other teams do a better job with what they have and seem to be able to improve, McLaren start at a very low point and their speed of development simply doesn't match the others. I had also expected Honda to do a better job but they seem to well behind as well, hopefully things will improve but i'm not counting on it given recent history.

F1 » McLaren ends day after hydraulic issue


Very bad news I would have thought and it really looks now as though McLaren will go into the first race without any full speed running. They now have three days to get up to speed and on the evidence so far that is simply not going to happen. I would not have imagined that McLaren could manage an even worse start to the season than they have in the past two and Honda have clearly not got their act together either so the problem is even worse than previously. I see Button and Alonso are toeing the party line about potential and winning races but in reality they must be wondering what the f... is going on. Alonso might well turn out to be the highest paid parking assistent rather than driver. Very sorry to see it but somehting is seriously wrong somewhere.

F1 » McLaren blames wind for Alonso crash, slams electrocution rumours


They are bound to deny that anything mechanical failed given the situation they find themself in. Is it not much more likely that something failed given the relative lack of mileage they have on the car, also I've not heard of accidents caused by a change of wind direction or whatever they are claiming. Whatever happened at least Alonso is OK but they have a huge leeway to catch up with everyone else especially given McLaren's slow development of the past several seasons.
