Funny how teams always look to the past when things aren’t going well. McLaren celebrates 150 races over 8 years.
I’m all for celebrating history, I think it’s fantastic and absolutely necessary. However, McLaren are having their worst season in 20 years. The young hot shot Sergio Perez has just been sacked, the team are putting their faith in a 22-year-old with no Formula 1 races under his belt and they’re headed for at least another season or 2 of unpredictability with new engines and a possible retirement from Jenson Button.
Maybe the focus should be on the 5-year plan instead of the previous 8? Meanwhile, Martin Whitmarsh continues to carry on with absolute immunity and Ron Dennis wants no involvement whatsoever.
