      @b&srbck I mean McLaren do have an Indycar team (Arrow McLaren SP), Plus Brown ultimately realised that Alonso was the main perpetrator in the inability for McLaren and Honda to succeed, lucky he left before he could more damage, now i just feel renault/alpine are making the same mistakes as McLaren made in 2014/15 bringing Alonso in when they knew he was a bridge burner and a tough "customer" in general

      @Joseph Husain yeah that’s what I’m worried about man. The fact that they had to use tokens for this is laughable. These rules were partly to blame for the failure McLaren and Honda failed to. As F1 rules were so restrictive for a new engine entrant and engine change. Let’s see if they are consistent when Red Bull makes a decision on their engine ... I have already heard not. Cheers man

    • Joseph Husain

      Agreed. This won’t guarantee them best of the rest in 2021. They’re gonna have to use their tokens to fit the Mercedes PU inside the car, meaning few aerodynamic upgrades.

      @Beto LF That is the most false statement I've ever heard, Red Bull literally slapped Renault from 2016-18 and ever after RB McLaren beat the Renault Works team twice, if there could be such clause why didn't Renault put it into a clause, plus the F.I.A would be all over Mercedes High performance power trains in trying to stop them from putting a stupid and unnecessary clause into their contracts

      Too expensive to develop, and don’t sell enough cars to justify it. Spyker and Marussia had teams and couldn’t justify an engine program. Even Aston Martin are entering a team next year, and aren’t even thinking of developing an engine

    McLaren look like a very solid organized team. Good pit crew, good management on behalf of Zac Brown and we don't even need to mention the talented drivers they had and are about to add another one. All that plus the great working environment that their team appears to be. Although I'm a Ferrari fan, I hope they can become even better.

    Am I the only one kinda afraid of next year.... They can't do any major chassis upgrades due to their engine supplier change.... Whilst all other teams can.... Hopefully I'm wrong but I don't expect them to be third, it could even be that Renault and Aston Martin jump them... Or even ferrari.... I think 5th in the constructors would be a solid result next season for mclaren

      @supertouring22 the design is 20 year old, not the gear box itself. They had the money before but they are very proud of the fact that they manufacture everything else besides the PU. It's a very expensive and unreliable way to do stuff in modern F1, that's why they are dead last. i'm sure this will change next year with the new owners.

I don't know why you don't like him, yes he does twitch and NLcameras, but that's not a bad thing🤷🏽‍♂️ He is a very consistent driver in the field, and had a close battle in stats with Carlos. Ricciardo will be a great teammate and the battle between them will be interesting. Btw what's the problem with a 12 year old girls getting into f1?🤔 Interesting choice of words you used...
