Mclaren-Renault

245 posts in this topic


With NO points for Mclaren powered by Renault (Alonso DNF SVD out of the points)

Mclaren in the constructors championship are;
P7 on 52 points. 22 points ahead of Torro Rosso Honda (P8 on 30 points)
Looking that Mclaren powered by Renault WILL probably finish ahead of Torro Rosso Honda
Which things being consistent will, prove a point to those in Japan.
Proving that walking away from  the Honda money for the, Renault reliability. Were the right decision.
Though the guys back at the factory in Woking, NEED to come up with something to take Mclaren forward,                
to challenge AGAIN

It is ALL different from when I were last at the factory.
It WERE Mclaren Mercedes then.

RBR (Renault) = 248 points (after 14 races)

McLaren (Renault) = 52 points

Clearly McLaren is in free-fall.

Surely Mclaren`s target now HAS to be;
Finishing at LEAST 5th, at THIS time
24 points AWAY
That target WOULD make Mclaren the HIGHEST customer team.
The REST are works teams.
Force India (powered by Mercedes) ARE the HIGHEST
Customer team

RBR is (for all practical purposes) a customer team for Renault just as McLaren is. I do not understand then why anyone would want comparing McLaren's performance to TR, as opposed to RBR.

This guy Brown first kicks his current driver Vandoorne out, and now he is suggesting for TR to pick him up (as a reject)? 

Quote

McLaren team chief Zak Brown has called on Toro Rosso to consider putting Stoffel Vandoorne in one of their cars for 2019, despite firing the Belgian from his own team and replacing him with 18-year-old unproven Lando Norris.

Unsolicited meddling in foreign affairs seems second nature for some people. One would assume Brown has enough of issues at home where his focus perhaps should be, instead worrying what TR will or will not do.

Zak's probably promised Vandorne to help him out. "A shame we can't have you next year. You're a really good driver and have done an excellent job. Of course I'll do all I can to help you get a good drive for next season. I am sure it is going to work out just fine for you  Might even be better for you this way...bla bla bla..." And then afterwards: "[email protected]! What can I do?  I'll tell Torro Rosso they should take Stoffel then I have lived up to my promise"

Sure.

McLaren - I can tell you how it was.

TR - I can tell you how it is.

Verstappen - looks good and promissing.

Alonso - I am leaving.

A LOT longer


Not THAT long ago. Public opinion were HIGH, Williams WERE WINNING - Strange concept to think today.
Williams WERE winning & Williams HAD Newey
Mclaren WERE winning & Mclaren HAD Newey
RedBull WERE winning & RedBull HAD Newey (Newey NOW upstairs/back-seat)
Turbo era, Mercedes ARE Winning, with Ferrari getting closer

Now IS the time, so OPEN your mind



So DO something.
IF U DO the SAME as everybody else, U WILL be the SAME as everybody else.
IF U do something DIFFERENT, U WILL be REMEMBERED

What people?

Honda STILL has potential,  but NO race wins
Mercedes, Ferrari and Renault the ONLY PU to WIN a GP in THIS turbo era

Mclaren ARE powered by a race WINNING PU now !!

Maybe true but if it wasn't for Renault Ric who destroyed Kvyat's race then Kvyat would have been higher than Mcnissan ;)

Also TR is only Jr. Works. It's RED Bull that is Honda's works...

Only NOW. 
TR initially became Honda works when Mclaren relinquished the opportunity.
Of a GP2 engine, in a bid to keep Alonso happy.
TR is Red Bulls Jr team, anyway so just a simple formality switching

Will be interesting to find out between TR and McLaren who wins in the end , that is IF we are comparing the 2 instead of McLaren vs RB ?

>Indeed because it were TR who took the opportunity that Mclaren abandoned, for Alonso.
Red Bull HAPPY to take the money for the exposure of a fizzy drink

Zak is not the slickest leader but very good in pointing finger...

Much like Horner were in the Red Bull Renault
