They seem to have the same steaming pile of poo signature logo as Santander.

Talula almost gave them victory.
On topic, Mclaren are looking good however Im not convinced they are the team to beat as we haven't seen the RBR's pace and I don't think Ferrari have shown their true colours yet either.

We did not do any long runs because of the rain. I think we will see long runs in FP3

Yes we did, Lewis did 1 26s at the end of FP1 and said on twitter it was a long run sim.

Yeah you are probably right but in that time there was lots of traffic so it is difficult measure lap times really.

Might explain its tendency to aquaplane in the wet....

Sure, I've no idea if those times are competitive, but at least there was some high fuel running :up:

Quick question though, is 5 seconds difference what you would expect between full fuel and barely any/fumes? Because that was the difference between Lewis' low and high fuel runs.

Yeah more or less there is about 5-6 seconds difference between 1 lap of fuel and full race fuel

Thanks. I take it from that we didn't see too many others on long runs to compare times? Not sure what's going on with RB but they seem to struggle even on the lower fuel.
(caveat being its only FP, fuel level unknown etc etc)

Not really
Talula is the sled that broke, on the final run and than had to be carried to the finishing line, thus earning the respect of everyone there but not the victory.

That's a bad omen if you ask me

I agree. Tulisa would be a better choice.

I think it's part of the Vodafone sponsorship package, companies on Vodafone business contracts can win the position for a race. I think the competitions are specific to the countries/regions of the race where Vodafone operate - I'm not sure what happens in regions where Vodafone don't operate - whether Verizon business customers get the same competion in Canada or if they open it up to other regions who don't have their own GP's.

Goku isn't very feminine. Lewis would be breaking a time old tradition and would no doubt receive a ten place grid penalty for it.

Looks good so far, but I've been disappointed before. Just waiting for that inexplicable 3 second drop-off from Q2 to Q3.

I'm hoping Talula can give us a chance for victory.

Yeah, I feel like they will screw up something. They haven't forgotten to put the correct amount of fuel in the car for a while now...

Upgrades seems work properly, is a great sign for this weekend and rest of season.

I think we are a real chance to take 1-2 here in Hungary, but chances of rain on Sundays make me concern... :confused:

Keep the Faith in Team and Drivers, this WDC and WCC is our, don´t have any doubt, McLaren answered with a lot of properly works upgrades, and the car marks the pace on track.

Please, we need a dry weekend.... we need the luck that we hadn´t in first half of season, we can win it mates!!!!

Good Job team, the car is near the perfection!!!
