Yes! thank you for bringing the footage here... That's what I mentioned... I think Mclaren is not the first time making the best car on the grid, or at least as close as the best one. Except unreliable just like in 2012 when Lewis was spoiled for so many times by retirement...

Not the first time we see Mclaren making huge creative design which still in the rules, remember f-duct. They're absolutely is a great team, and is always the team to beat for so many years. Unfortunately, it's been quite some years without any championship for Mclaren!

Even with a very good car, Mclaren need some more efforts in it... Red Bull is a perfect team, not only with a strong car, the team is very solid, very strong, and beside all of that, the car is absolutely ultra reliable!

Now, let's wait and see how the whole TEAM perform with such a promising car! The driver are also yet to be considered... We still need to see how rookie Magnussen perform, and how Button could consistently perform well...



Their competitor will always be the same... Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull. All of those teams has one very good driver, Lewis, Alonso and Vettel. This might be a factor too... And let's not forgot that Mclaren is under huge restructuring in organization with Boullier now onboard, I might not think that they could perform that well with such promising car.. But Let's hope 2014 will show us many great races! :thumbsup: Flag:##

I know there's the whole 'times are irrelevant' aspect, but Renault's fastest time was 6.6s off the pace.

I was unsure whether Caterham managed to best the day 2 time of Toro Rosso. I still believe that we havn't seen half of what Renault are capable off with their engine but on the other hand, I cant see Mercedes or Ferrari stretching the engines legs either.
