after all those honda bashing and blaming done by mclaren , if mclaren are 0.6 away from the fastest to whom i believe will be mercedes, then there is serious problems with that mclaren chassis. and you have to remember mclaren boasts about how good their chassis is , so then now is the time to prove their chassis and no more excuses. lets see

Agree with Andres125sx. Time is now to be Optimistic.

Anyways can never be worse that last year. We went from the great hope to the great NOPE in zero time flat!

Testing was devastating last year.

Who knows, maybe they have something special in store since they announced that they will introduce a new package in Melbourne. I still find it intriguing that McLaren want to have the sharkfin banned.

I thought they were the ones that banned it by vetoing the decision to keep them?

Mclaren was the only team against the sharkfin, thus the ban of it.

That's what I meant, sorry.

Looks much better, although I still miss the old cars.

Last years cars would have looked so much better without the sharkfins.

You go to all the trouble of designing rules for these wider more aggressive cars with raked back wings and then everyone slaps a gigantic billboard on the back of their car. Complete with a tv antenna, just to add insult to injury.

With Mclaren stating they're intending to 'be the team on the grid' to look at also with their motorhomes and stuff,
could we be seeing Mclaren with Tesla Semi Trucks?

That is almost always the case. The testing package will use as much from last year as possible that is visible to the eye.
