At the second practice session in spain today Kimi was asked to shut his car off due to some electrical problem they detected!

When will this end?
Is this just plain bad luck? Or is Mclaren upto something no one knows about?

Do something RON!! Well why am i crying out to him id rather say Do something Mercedes-Benz, Please chuck illmor!!

McLaren are going through a rather lean period now, just like they did when they used Peugeot engines some years ago. Seriously, I don't think they will be able to bounce back this year.
Whatever anyone says, in my opinion, Mercedes will not be able to develop a better engine / car anywhere else than they have been able to in Ilmor. Remember how much they struggled in their Sauber days? It was only after they came together with McLaren that they really got anywhere. McLaren's expertise is invaluable.
As a McLaren fan, I will always stand by them and hope for the best.

This is totally pathetic!!Kimi has got just a single point in this season thus far and Benz is to be blamed..I totally agree with Aditya. I'm pretty much sure that they will not bounce back this season..They got lapped by Renault,Ferrari etc..
(Hope they make me eat my words!!)

This is horrible.I feel they should bring back last year's car and atleast finish in the points!!

Lets just wait and see what the 'new' car can do!!


Poor Kimi and David!!

I don't think the Mclaren is even comparable to Ferrai and BAR as far as power is concerned.

Button was so easily keeping pace, infact he was getting bottled up behind the 2 Mclarens.

What a difference one year can make. SO what's in store for next year??? Minardi challengine Ferrari?? lol
