Relax, it's only FP1. Watch them set the track ablaze come qualifying. Will definitely climb a position or two

The problem is aero, and I'll say it until I'm blue in the face. They're throwing away the better part of a second because they don't take advantage of a big chunk of surface area in a critical location. It's just a void, a stagnant void that isn't doing anything at all, and it's not even the whole car that has to change, it's just one little area. Because otherwise the car is excellent aero wise. You think it's B.S. but all the tests they're doing will just end up telling them what I've been saying all along.

Send your resume to Mclaren ASAP, I'm not sarcastic here, I truly mean it. If you can spot whats wrong with the package just by looking at the car from photos, TV and videos then dam....my hat if off to you!

At least we're sure they Chief Technical Officer position is free.
But if you're really sure of the solutions you're offering, surely there must be a way to get across to Mclaren.

Because it's so critical just sticking parts on there can do as much harm as good, and it's naivety in the extreme to think you could just turn up , slap parts on and fix it.

Yes, there's room for more development there, it's the biggest development area since the rule change, of course there is - but given the other teams copying parts from Mclarens BB's, they aren't all that bad...

I also wonder why I always see Horner talking to the press, while Brown and Boullier look like a bunch of shy teenagers. How about telling what’s up, because there are no excuses left.

this, even claire williams and paddy lowe talk to the media and whilst not exactly outspoken about their problems, at least they don't hide away

Maybe they can get Newey and Ricciardo for two Snickers.
