    Maybe McLaren will build the best car in the world over the winter, Honda will do one, Mercedes will stick an engine in the back of it attached with optimism and blu-tac, then Button will be reprieved from unemployment and win the title.

    That'd be totally unprecedented. ;)

    Isn't that what I said a few posts back? ;)

    Probably, but I don't think you mentioned blu-tac.

    It'd be interesting to see how the current car would perform with a Mercedes power unit. Though some disagree, I think the car itself is pretty good and could be at the front. I guess they've had to develop/test it with a manky power unit so even they don't know the true potential.

    The significant shortcoming is not in the area of the chassis, as has been proven in Spain, Monaco and Canada, it is the PU that is not performing to the extent which is desired by the team. Thus, the potential to be fighting for podiums is there, if there were a Mercedes PU in the car.

    Think podiums is unlikely. I think they'd be just behind Red Bull at full power.

    Isn't Alonso alleged to have said the chassis is "perfect"? I haven't seen the quote myself just heard it said on US telly. With a Merc engine maybe it could be genuinely competitive.

    Mezzer rufus_mcdufus Martin Brundle said the Mclaren chassis works very well and is amongst the best bar probably Ferrari or Mercedes. At Canada on a power track the Mclarens ought to be near the back but the chassis clearly is helping in some way that Alonso nearly got into Q3

    Hmm so Jenson will probably end up doing Le Mans then?

    Good for JB. Wish we saw more of those races in the UK.

    A Honda assault on Le Mans looks extremely unlikely in the foreseeable future.
