You what? Mclaren Honda have had two years to develop an engine with unlimited resources and time. Last season's Mclaren engine was not even a Honda, so you cannot compare the two. This Honda engine is so far ahead of the others the FIA have banned them from making further improvements during the 2015 season

yeah, they have the best engine for sure SMH
exactly why the fia tried to limit them without success. if the engine was just average do you think the fia would try to pull that stunt???

you're quoting autsport at me - now I know you're daft. Let me explain something to you - Autosport's job at this time of year is to create a bunch of hype about the upcoming F1 season. They do this mainly by playing on what happened in 2009 and making out like every test contains something of a revelation and perhaps there's some big secret there that you can't see. They do this for one reason only - to sell magazines and subscriptions! They don't have any actual racing to fill their pages at the moment so they have generate their own excitement to upkeep their turnover figures. you buddy, have fell for it hook line and sinker! The interesting thing about the McLaren though is the car itself. There's some mighty fine design solutions in there and this car is already starting to remind me of the ill fated MP4/20 which was the fastest car of 2005 by a mile but couldn't last a race weekend without blowing up. This is just a little bit of history repeating!
hi fkqmz, if yr so confident Mclaren are garbage then I'll bet this with you. Mclaren to win at least race in 2015/16. If they don't I won;t post on the Motorsport forum, if they do, you won;t post on here ever again. I have added you as a contact request, if you want to take personal wagers of up to 200 pounds via paypal i'd happy to agree. zazu if you are game too, i'd be happy to do do the same,

Mclaren regularly come up with innovative design ideas. They rarely work
that's totally true. f1 racing goes around in cycles though,
added you too, Mclaren to win at least race in 2015/16. we can exchange contact details. 200 pounds is the bet for you too. If they don't win I won;t post on the Motorsport forum, if they do, you won;t post on here ever again. yr call

all hot air? hang on you started the thread by declaring that McLAren will be "light years ahead of the rest" and already you're backtracking to "They will win 1 race sometime in the next 2 years". Go away!
you are twisting words to suit yrself and just making excuses to get out of it. that's cool i get it. The engine is indeed ahead of the pack, doesn;t necessarily mean the car is ahead of the rest.
i don;t understand, the next two tests will see mclaren at the back of the field, so the bet is still open to you before the 1st race,.

Why would I wait 9 months for £200 when I can just do a day at work and get it paid the following friday? As said before, Mclaren wont win a dry race and ill never post on here if they do. They may fluke one in the wet/damp if its utter madness and they luck in.
if 200 isn;t enough I can go to 1K max. that;s pretty easy money over 9 months. the next two tests will see the mclaren at the back of the field, way way way off the pace, so i don;t understand why you can;t accept the challenge.
