LAST team/PU (Mclaren Honda) Vs Second-to-LAST team/PU  (TR, Renault)

I DID some up with that.
Though it is NOT really, the pinnacle of motorsport.
The BOTTOM two teams FIGHTING  it out

We have Mercedes & Ferrari FIGHTING at the FRONT.
Renault & Honda FIGHTING at the BACK

Realistically a grid of FOUR/EIGHT, the works teams (2 teams x 2 cars)
With the rest of the field, populated by CUSTOMER teams

Who WILL succeed, Works OR Customer???

It WOULD B really exciting to watch if,  there WERE a challenge from the customer teams.
BEFORE the FIRST pre-season testing HAS even taken place;
Mclaren powered by Renault / Alonso, expectations are HIGH.

18 February 2018, 12:15  My increasingly unreliable memory is telling me, that in your summation perhaps RBR could be included as well.

My appraisal of a crystal ball - 8 cars with a chance to win a race here and there, 3 maybe 4 drivers with a chance to win the championship. As a disclaimer I am ignoring unpredictable reliability related fallouts.

The papaya and blue livery looks so meh <_<and dull:blush:. No lines or any accent.

It's like they painted a car and stuck sponsor stickers on it. Lazy design :blink:. There are lots of Formula 3 that looks 10 times better :rolleyes:

Is that what's gonna challenge for podium ? :lol::lol:

Looks like they lost their mojo already even before the start of the season :whiteflag:

...yet someone on this forum named Renault - the most beautiful looking car from them all, altho I am not sure if it was meant regarding color, body shape, or both. Differences in taste are very transparent, but that should not draw wedge between racing fans.

Regarding McLaren - I am reading - some sideline experts declared, salivating over potential superiority, this car looking fast (and therefore must be fast).

Well with that liars they couldn't make six laps in whole test.

Or complete race distance untill two years later.

Honda: " we will compete for victories from the start of the season "

Renault team finished full race distance, McLaren w Renault PU covered less than 2/3 of the race distance. (106% v. 60%).

Honda wasn't involved this time around.

McLaren Renault - TOPS timing sheet

f1Timing.jpg

With the only timed lap on record, this driver is in the news how good he feels to be at the top. No, this is not a joke. It sounds like he means it.  Here you go, how low man's desperate soul hungry for a cheap headline can descent?
