Indeed they are NOT limping with the Honda.
The Honda is in FRONT of SVD`s McLaren !!

And they are regularly on four wheels compared to three.

You are not reading cause i wrote "last stint", where they had same tyres and turned engine little bit more than conservative .

That's not the reason. Ferrari were "fat with fuel" on that last stint, If you followed trackside observations

Dont write nonsense.

Ferrari admited they were doing race sim. Fat with fuel comments were at the start of the race sim as proof of race sim.

They are comparable to RBR. So yes, great improvement. And they raked up over 100 laps, as all teams did. Lets hope they can keep it up

Look at the end of this clip. 2:11. Haha. No wonder the wheel fell off on the first day.

I'm not surprised, I'm sure many good people walked away, first they lost a title sponsor, then they had 3 rotten years with Honda, they have lost hunderds of millions in revenues, it's only natural that they have lost talent, what they did at that pit stop doesn't happen even in GP3, it's not a matter of lack of practice, it's a matter of lack of talent/ability

Boullier should work for a French team instead, where people will actually not ignore him. Right now he is there only when they need someone to take a blame for failures, but I doubt he has any say how team is being run.

That's a serious issue.

I know it is still early to say but Mclaren doesn't look like they are in contention again this year. Unluckily for their management, they cannot point the finger towards Honda any loner. Particularly when Torro Rosso is racking up all those laps. Some high ranking officials at Mclaren will get axed by the end of the season, including a SPANIARD....

Alonso has parked the McLaren - again. I wonder if he got a Memo that Honda actually left McLaren, thus old tricks must be repainted with new ones. Poor guy, he can't get a break.

If the comments ARE to be believed.
Boullier indicates THAT it is NOT JUST a PU supply change,       
The design guys in Woking HAVE come up with SOMETHING / a NEW philosophy.
I had hoped that they would, I REALLY liked the third pedal idea until, FIA BANNED it

McLaren adds a sponsor to its halo and its Gandys. A flip flop manufacturer. Theres a connection somewhere...
