    Saw a great F2 race today: Norris and Markelov outstanding, tons of passes. Tons.
    Let's see: same track as F1, same design as F1, same type of engine of F1 (turbo V6), similar vehicle dimensions as F1. 2 tyres compounds with 1 mandatory pitstop to switch them, even halo on these cars.
    What else? Less aerodinamics. Spec cars. I rest my case.

    I laugh, because all they did last year was bitch about the powerplants. Now they have a new contract, and continue to suck.

    I fell in love with McLaren when Coulthard and Hakkinen were drivers. When they separated from Mercedes it was a sign they have lost thier way. Since then, all they have done is whine about other things. This forces me to deduce they merely just want to play the victim role.

    Make your bed, don't whine when it smelled like vomit from drinking too much the night before.

    Oh I know, it's just that thomas' post forgot to add that. McLaren apparently had to reimburse Honda for 45M pounds for cutting their contract short.

    Aero’s my only big problem with the current cars, and their trying to address it unlike Bernie/Max Mosley
    The racing is still better now than 15 years ago with the awesome V10s
    Plus, Mercedes lets their drivers race each other.

    Agree with McLaren’s mgmt whining too much (Williams ran circles around them when they were both using Mercedes engines in 2014)
