F1 » Button: GPDA survey might not change anything


Button shouldn't be too bothered, he won't be around to see any change in FI, he's only on a one year contact with an option for a further year that won't be taken up by Mclaren if rumours are correct. RD only too k him on because he was outvoted and will surely take the first opportunity to restamp his authority on the team. I would put money on Vandoorne or Magnussen being in the car next year and possibly before then.

F1 » Button insists ‘solid progress’ despite frustrations


There are already suggestions about that Button will not be in a McLaren next season. RD didn't want him in the first place and will feel he's made a concession having Button in the car this year. If Vandoorne wins GP3 I suspect he will leapfrog past Magnussen to take Button's drive. Makes sense, why pay Button £6M to drive an uncompetitive car when they can have Vandorne for next to nothing. Button's had his day sadly and once he's gone Alonso will gain true NO1 status again.

F1 » Honda still devising plan for engine token spend


Honda have clearly uderestimated the complexities of developing a power unit. With their experience one would have expected a more competitive effort, however the chassis seems to be lacking as well but that is always the case with Mclaren. I don't see any success for this venture before 2017/8 and that will only be if they get everything right. In addition the others will have moved on by then so they will always be chasing their tail.

F1 » Alonso in it for the duration at McLaren-Honda


Quite frankly Alonso is between a rock and a hard place, he made his decision to jump ship from Ferrari on promises of a competitive car which have been broken by McLaren Honda. He now doesn't have any real options, while most teams would want him, Mercedes/RedBull/Williams are all sorted for drivers, obviously he won't go back to Ferrari so that leaves his present team McLaren, personally I think he has made a very big mistake, McLaren have been in decline since winning the championship with Hamilton while Ferrari have upped their game to the point where they can win races, must be very very frustrating but maybe £30M a year or whatever he gets softens the blow. I believe McLaren are two to three years away from being genuinly competitive so he will have a long wait.

F1 » Arai talks ‘pressure’ and McLaren podiums by mid-season


CrazyHorse23:
theoldgitspeaks: Is this guy for real, they are anywhere between a second and a half and two-seconds off the pace, the car is unreliable and according to both drivers scary to drive. Unless there is a huge accident or mass unreliability they have about as much chance of scoring points as Marussia do, NONE! Despite the constant bull**** we are not being told the truth, rather like politicians they think we are all idiots and believe anything they serve up, it took Ferrari/Redbull/Mercedes about five years to get to the point where they were winning races, why do McLaren think they are going to do it in half a season with a car still at the back of the grid at this stage of the season?
I don't recall Alonso having any problems with his cars handling or pace while running 7th. If it weren't for the one in a million chance of his visor rip-off blocking his rear brake duct there's a good chance he could have dragged that car into at least
