F1 » F1's summer break won’t halt McLaren momentum

While Mclaren may have improved so has everybody else and when you start so far behind you never catch up. It is halfway through the season now and if Mclaren have any sense they will start to concentrate on next year's car, they are not going to achieve anything this year so they might as well right it off and concentrate on supplying Honda with a decent car to put there engine in. In theory they have a very good chance of an advantage next season but i believe that once again their car will be below the standard set by Red Bull and Mercedes. Everybody says it takes at least 5 years to get a good team up to the required standard and Mclaren will be basically starting from scratch.Both the engine and car will need to be exceptional to get wins and if they are any less than that we can expect another dismal season from "the team with the winning mentality" . The days when Mclaren was that is back in the eighties and they might do well to remember that.

It's also an open secret that RD wants Alonso back and if that happens Button will be on the scrapheap, a great shame as i've always been a fan but at least he has a championship and a huge bank balance to enjoy. The only light i see at the end of this particular tunnel is a direct swop with Alonso a s Button had talks with Ferrari and has said he wou
