I have just finished analising the 2007 data and just adding in some probabilities of failure in my 2008 data. In 2007 the BMW block was the second strongest not far behind the Mercedes Benz FO108, in 2008 it was the strongest of the lot over 0.25% stronger than the Mercedes. Just floating a idea out there, what changed in the BMW power plant for 2009??? I think i have the answer, KERS is what screwed it all up for 2009, as the BMW on paper is the weakest block out there today.
Could that be the heart of all BMWs problems, too much time on a KERS system that could have been put into the car to make shure it was up with the Brawns and Red Bulls???
And if McLaren are looking for what is essencially BMW power for 2010, there gonna have to put some investment into the engine department to get it back right and propper.

In BMW's defense I have to say that they must have found some good in those boxy endplates. This is as good as I've seen BMW since the beginning of the year. They matched Webber's pace thru much of the race. Of course this is the first time they've done this in quite a while, but still they did it.

I remember that some aero engineers from Honda finally moved to BMW the last year. And it seems strange that from last year on, BMW aero developments have been less than stellar... some food for thought.

Bob is short for Robert.
