  • Looks great!

    Can't help but wonder if the return to orange and dropping the P4 from the chassis name is a way to kick Ron on the way out the door.

  • The reveal showed more of a reddish orange, not Mc Laren orange.

  • I think we find out a lot of things on Monday we'll also not find out a lot of things, who do you fancy as the biggest sandbagger?

    I was just reading that McLaren have no title sponsor so is that going to hold them back and it was reported the Honda have changed the power unit from last year so is that going to be good to go? I'm hoping it is so the racing is closer and not processional but time will tell.

  • Toro Rosso suffered a failure in the electrical/regenerative system of their Renault engine at their picture day! Taht does not bode well for the future.

  • Like the author says, the numbers just don't add up.  Walk away from $100m+ in sponsorship?  No, I think they would rather find a softer pull-out.  They can afford to go another year without wins easier than Alonso can.  He's the guy I will feel sorry for.  Going to go down in history as the F1 driver with the poorest timing/team choices ever.

    Honestly I don't give a fig about Mclaren anymore.  They are dead to me without Dennis.  Boullier has the personality and flair of a table.
