F1Brits_90 - alternatively, without the ego (and the massive pay-cheque) of Alonso, McLaren might actually be able to make progress...
I always thought that the biggest mistake they made was employing Alonso in the first place! If they had partnered Button with Vandoorne, they could have made some significant progress (and they would now be reaping the rewards of the improved Honda engine)...
The Artist..... you cant really say about the pay cheque because McLaren supposedly have 4th biggest budget in F1. for all Alonso off track problems. as we all know now Honda were responable for reliability but then low top speed was down to dreadful drag chassis from prodroumou & that if they had allowed a 2nd team to take a honda engine then they would've have the best of both worlds. but you cant deny that he has pulled numerous amazing results that shouldn't have been possible with that car. then judging this year McLaren have got 52pts Alonso contributed 44 of them
Over his spell since 2015. 5th in hungary, Monaco USA & Austraila 6th in hungary & russia. qualified 7th in spain. Out of 42 races he seen the chequered flag he's scored points in 24. Included every race this season
RasputinLives I am prepared to say that the issue is Mclaren or Zac Brown/ Eric Bouillier whoever it was up the hierarchy got rid of the wrong Mclaren engineer. They sacked Tim Goss who has been with the team for a while but I am still trying to work out what does Peter Prodromou do or add to the car.
If he is the aero dynamics specialist who came with this big reputation having been working with Adrian Newey then I am definitely not seeing the car improving in that department
Ever since Tim has been sacked Mclaren have tended to have difficulties getting out of Q1 . Now is that pure coincidence or are we saying Mclaren are in such a mess not that it is not solvable?
Coca-Cola agrees F1 sponsorship deal with McLaren
well lets hope this puts the fizz back in McLaren as they been flat now for 5+ years
Its a brilliant coup and its one I did not see coming. I thought Mclaren with Sainz now might have been better off with Telefonica Movistar who have been ditched by Yamaha in Moto GP and replaced by Monster
Maybe the trend is for drinks companies to be the main sponsor.
