They have the best and quickest engine apparently.   If they can sort out the aero and reliability they will be light years ahead of the rest,.  You heard it hear first ;-)

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

the excitement is driven by Honda's pedigree in building 1.6l engines. The 1.6 iVtec they've been putting in civics for the last 10+ years is a fabulous engine for both performance and reliability and in theory, this format of F1 should be right up their street. However Honda being Honda they'll probably spend most of the first year at the side of the track billowing all sorts of blue smoke

Mclaren have terrible reliability (unbelievably bad!) and haven't shown any sign of being quick never mind as fast as Mercedes.

Brawn dropped on the track and instantly went stupidly quick. 8/1 on Mclaren is utter madness

Laugh 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,

The first post after you suggested the bet I mentioned rain so its not a new inclusion. They have 2 very handy wet/mixed conditon drivers and the Merc engine loses a lot of its performance advantage. Plus look at Hungary, Mercs miles faster in wet weather but still didnt win

LMAO!!!! I very rarely keep up with this forum and even in the summer motorsport season i just check it on racedays. I wish I had checked it in the winter during testing to see this absolute joke of a thread.

How anyone can even suggest that Mclaren are on a par with Merc as far back as the first test is beyond me. Since when has an engine supplier come in to F1 brand new and instantly come in with the fastest engine on the grid in modern times?? Laughable.

I really don't think you need to put the will Mclaren win a dry race in your bet, give him wet race and all. Nowadays in F1 the bridge of rain isn't what it used to be and you still need to have a good aero package to win in the rain. The Mclaren is horrible from a speed standpoint and an engine standpoint.

It will be intersting to see if they beat Manor in Malaysia if Manor make it to the grid ExcitedCrazyExcitedCrazy
