Maybe with the W11 suspension RP can get ahead but Mugello and Sochi had windy quali sessions which doesn't suit the car, and even then Perez wasn't miles ahead. But Spa and Monza they were quicker and very close in Spain.SmallSoldier wrote: ↑Fri Oct 02, 2020 3:23 pmI don’t think anyone is saying that they are miles ahead, but at least RP (and by the team’s own admission) is a few tenths ahead of the MCL35... The Renault, I believe it is on par, maybe a bit faster on certain days and a bit slower on others.M840TR wrote:Lots of talk about Renault and RP suddenly being miles ahead of Mclaren now. Key thing to remember is the Mcl35 still seems to have a higher peak than the rest if conditions suit it. In Sochi FP3 it seemed a clear 2nd fastest yet the pendulum swung come Quali as the wind picked.
With the new aero package seemingly addressed at this specific problem, the season is far from being written off yet.
The last 2 races haven’t been representative either... Mugello was a chaotic race and Sochi, we lost Carlos in Lap 1 and Lando was at the back of the grid by the time the race got going.

I'm eager to see the new upgrade on Perez's RP and Mcl35 next week.
