If Mclaren needs better staff what do you people propose? Should they just bring back Andrian Newey or try and get Ross Brawn and give him the keys to build the team?
LOL you do realize it takes two to tango? It's not like walking into a shop and getting your favorite toy. For them to "bring back" Newey or "get" Brawn, both of them should be willing.

Are you trolling or being serious, because there is 0 chance that they will come.

Nah , you just walk into your local grocery store and pick them up.

I hear a lot on hear about Mclaren's suspension issues. Does anybody know if they're actively working on a fix for 2018, or it can only be addressed next year?
Q: (Stefano Mancini – La Stampa) Kimi, will you help Vettel to win his championship this year?

TBH, it's just a speculation. We don't actually know what their problems are but we have speculated that they are traction issues stemming from the mechanical components.

McLaren doesn’t even know, but they’re the only one running that configuration.

I think the problem is that they want to run before learning to walk.

So, one more weekend and same thing. Very poor qualifying but race pace decent, close/faster than Renault. Imagine if the race pace was like qualy, Saubers would simply pull away.

All the hype and now we have Mclaren solidly embedded in the midfield and fighting to stay in the group. Strange race, everyone in midfield was within few seconds just not able to overtake or pull a gap. Vandoorne finishing ahead of just Sirotkin and behind both Saubers, how the mighty have fallen.

Ferrari threw a whole bunch of money at Ross Braun a couple of years ago and he didn't bite.

Newry was chased away by Ron's inflexibility.

EB in an article reference yesterday in this forum stated the problem was slow corners. He didn't come out and say it was the suspension.

Just that they had to run more DF to compensate.

It did sounds like a rear suspension issue..


In another articale where he was asked why not just throw in the towel on this years development and just switch to the 2019 car, He said that he was confident they could resolve the issue and then use was they learn in the MCL34.

Mclaren has to promise a good amount of money and total freedom to Newey or Brawn and of course show them a plan that will persuade them to come back. I don't see why they can't bring them back.

Ahem ahem, if u did just wake up from your hibernation let me inform you that we have completed 1/3 of the season and so had 4 months of racing development. Next four races will come and go in a flash. And its not looking promising as they are mostly fast circuits.

Not sure what to tell you, Vandourne has been finishing back there all season.
