now ill point out the reasons why i agree
very true, sticking one driver on high down force and one on low, just negates the fact they have no ****ing clue half the time, also the fact they stuck "BUTTON" on the better set up leaving Hamilton to struggle,when Hamilton is higher on the table confuses me and even then the nob complained and got pole. seriously your driving a f1 car, not a banger racer.
this seasons 'cock ups' by McLaren themselves have cost Lewis this years championship, they have been simply awful, costing him more many more points than hes cost them...
Until McLaren get rid of that blithering idiot 'Whit marsh' I cant see them doing much in the future unless they have a car that leagues ahead
also very true, alto hes got a wise head screwed on his shoulders your find he only started his career in f1 in 1989 as head of ops, but only became head leader of McLaren in 1997, and previously in aero space,
were as brawn has his roots at f1, a leading aerodynamicist for Williams in the late year of 1978. and on to manage many teams since. some successful some not. look at brawn GP, born from the ashes of Honda. ill always hate brawn for selling to Mercedes but i don't know the low down, hes just not had the right driver to work with, yes talented but just not able to work with properly!
and lets not forget brawn was behind the late and great shumi at benetton and Ferrari! i just cant wait. i think there going to get on like a house on fire!
any way lets see. i think he will like it, look at lotus, a crap team last year, but up and coming this year that for sure, so any thing is possible, on the note of Perez i hope he does well but i also hope they become a mid team and Hamilton can blow away his old team.
any way, always good to have a aerodynamicist as your boss rather then witmarsh who managed to get his job via head of operations.
if you have watched f1 turbo engines how they started, brawn was there, leading the way while witmarsh was still in nappys
I think that Perez is more than capable of winning championship next year and am 90% sure that he will have more points than Hamilton.
ask your self this, so we have two identical cars, same fuel tires etc etc and you have Hamilton ion one and Perez in the other, your telling me Perez would be better. ill slap you in to reality because altho he is a good driver even McLaren have stated he is a up and coming driver with good potential. that isn't what can be said for Hamilton, he just never got that aggressive behavior from gp2 out his system, because that is the best way to drive some times. and compared to f1, gp2 is more exciting in regards to true racing, f1 is more strategy and who has the biggest balls.
I will also laugh if Hamilton catches Alonso in points this year and wins in McLaren. That would give him something to think about.
its a long shot but possible. and i do hope he gets very close if he doesn't,
I do know that Mercedes is capable of designing competitive car in future but Hamilton will be crying on TV and twitter until that happens..
ok Mercedes as a name has done **** for building a car. brawn is the one who is the brains behind it all. as said above, thus why Mercedes jumped to buy brawn GP. i really do wish he found the money or sponsorship to carry on in to 2010.
and as your not a f1 driver, you have no idea of then frustrations when you know your better then your team mate and others for that matter. you cant say you wouldn't winge about it if it just continued, and as he was in contract he cant just leave. think about it.
again how could you even say that, you have no idea what cars McLean and merc have lined up. and you may never know this might be Hamilton break, and McLean will be the one sulking with there loss
Imo he left for more cash that all and will regret it sooner or later. IMO
He was under McLaren hand since gokarts, went to f1 thanks to them, won championship thanks to them designing competitive car and left after couple of years not winning it again although they were still at similar level to red bull. Stupid boy
yes he has been under mclreans hand for some time, but theres no way you can say McLaren had 100% hand in making Hamilton a good driver, or make him have world champion ships, lets compare button, hes been with them for 2 years, and been on pole "TWICE" so your saying button who breezed every one even Hamilton in 2009 cant even touch Hamilton in the same car, yes settings are tweaked, but thats down to driver. nothing is made worse or better for either driver.
also to note Hamilton has always been at the front. always higher then 6th on average. the driver can only go as quick as the car hes strapped in to.
and last year 2011, and un doubly the year before that 2010 redbull had the best blown diffuser. the following year 2012 oh hold on there not winning. does this mean vettel is no good, no it means he can only go as fast as the car will allow, be it down force or engine management and also down to strategy and tyre wear.
watch some more f1 then come back with some thing i cant blow apart
