Every time a team brings upgrades they say they are looking for a tenth , 2 tenths, 3tenths and so on. No one can really tell as weather is never the same, and the other 11 teams are constantly upgrading their cars too.
What my question is, how much faster would todays Mclaren be than the Mclaren that rolled out in Melbourne in March. If both cars were raced at Silverstone for a grand prix simulation by the same driver with the same weather. Bearing in mind the car will be faster over a single lap and possibly better at managing tyre ect... Are we talking 10 seconds faster over a race or a minute ? or even a lap ???
Any views would be good

Looking at my data, the teams have gained or lost the following percentage in lap time on average since the first event in Melbourne:
Red Bull-Renault 0.716
Scuderia Ferrari 0.385
Mercedes AMG F1 Team 0.431
Lotus F1-Renault 0.179
Force India-Mercedes -0.497
Scuderia Toro Rosso-Ferrari 0.403
Caterham F1-Renault 0.923
Marussia F1-Cosworth -0.917
1% is a score of 0.758 for those who ask. A positive figure shows gain and a negitive shows the car is going down the grid now.
Ive done the math for you, and the teams have gained or lost the the following time a lap:
Red Bull-Renault 0.944
Scuderia Ferrari 0.508
Mercedes AMG F1 Team 0.569
Lotus F1-Renault 0.236
Force India-Mercedes -0.656
Scuderia Toro Rosso-Ferrari 0.531
Caterham F1-Renault 1.217
Marussia F1-Cosworth -1.209
Those times are from the teams performance from Melbourne in March to Hungary arround 2 weeks ago.
