I think this time last year the expectations were good - the on-track running had not yet exposed the mysterious aero problem that didn't show itself in the wind tunnel.
I'm hopeful that the hard lessons have been learned though - especially in light of many comments to that effect.
Not expecting wins, but I'm expecting a much better car next year. All comments are positive at this stage. But I know, they usually are, at this stage lol.
Regarding last year - Didn't Boullier also claim that they simply set their targets too low (when they came to find the car was a dog relative to the competition)?
