Yeah what a stretch. Mclaren built a car quick enough to take the title in 07, 08, 10 and 12. I'm a Jenson fan and I accept the fact that the drivers share the blame for that. Certain fans don't of course. The bottom line is the only sustained adversity at Mclaren has got nothing to do with the car.
10 - Maybe, but in the end Lewis didn't do anymore mistakes than Vettel/Alonso yet finished behind both. He needed to have a perfect season, with them having their avg seasons to win title.
12 - Car was best, but racing operations were by far worst if you look at top 3 teams. Lewis would win title before last race had McLaren did a decent job with him.
07 - Lets not get too deep into that, but yeah, it was probably best performance from McLaren team (drivers aside) in last 10 seasons and it is mostly drivers that screwed up here.
08 - Lewis did win the title, and won it in an inferior machinery (yeah, he was lucky in that Kimi had horrible season and Massa's best season still wasn't that good given he had a fairly bad start into season)
I'm looking forward to 2013. season, but I have to admit I'm not expecting much. Button will take the title given a really great car/support, but wheter McLaren can actually compete with RBR/Ferrari - and really make something fantastic - not convinced.
