McLAREN - WHY ARE THEY IN A MESS?
by bartonsredmist (U10731069) 27 March 2009
Whislt I enjoy F1 (when it's not a boring procession around a track of course) I'm not a petrol head, footballs my game, so maybe you guys who are much more knowledgeable than me can explain this. I thought that alongside Ferrari, McLaren were one of the leading teams, for size of budget, engineering nous, best designers, world class facilties, etc etc etc. So how come they have produced such a dog of a car, that already seems to have Mr Hamilton severley handicapped to challenge this year - or certainly in the early races? If my assumptions above about Mclaren are correct, how come this happenend and a team like Brawn GP, who seem to have been here only a few weeks, albeit rising from the defunct Honda(wow, wasn't their last car a world beater!) seem to have prepared a rocket of a car. How could the senior management of Mclaren let this happen? Is no one in control after Mr Dennis stepped down? In my line of work, if I made such a mess of my budget I'd be so embarrased at the lack of my professional competence to get the job done I'd resign. Can someone explain please...maybe Mr Whitmarsh can reply?
