McLaren are sand bagging as usual, it will probably be a fight between Red Bull and McLaren.

Ferrari although sad to say, look like they are out of it, not so good at developing the car. Last year they concentrated on KERS too much, this time it was the F-duct rather than bringing other upgrades.

Mclaren in trouble with new updates go back to old configuration.

Spoiler:
McLaren has abandoned its exhaust-blown diffuser for the rest of the British Grand Prix weekend, AUTOSPORT can reveal, after a difficult first day of running with the concept at Silverstone on Friday.

The Woking-based team had high hopes that the update package it brought on to the car for this weekend's race would help lift its performance to take the fight to pre-event favourites Red Bull Racing.

However, both Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button failed to get comfortable with the new handling and set-up of the revised MP4-25 at Silverstone - with Hamilton running off-track several times as he took the car to the limit.

Button admitted that the car had not felt good with the new parts - and that the team needed to invest much more effort in making them work.

"Today's been a little bit trickier than expected in the car," said the reigning world champion.

"First of all I couldn't get a set-up for the car with the new package, but it improved at the end of the day, but there's still a lot of work we need to do. We are not where we'd like to be. The car is very tricky in a few places around the circuit.

"We've definitely made some improvements in certain places, but we don't have the right balance yet. I haven't had a perfect day today, which is disappointing because even on a Friday it's good to see so many people out there."

With Hamilton ending the day more than 1.5 seconds adrift of the best time from Red Bull Racing, McLaren felt that its chances of a decent result in the British GP would be best served with using the package it knows best.

Late on Friday night, McLaren mechanics were seen wheeling the updated floors out of the Silverstone paddock as work began on revising the cars back to the configuration that has been used up until this race - with the standard exhaust set-up.

Sources have revealed that McLaren understands where improvements can be made with the package, and revisions will be developed to ensure the exhaust-blown diffuser is back on the car for the German Grand Prix.

McLaren had come into the weekend viewing the British GP as a critical weekend in its title challenge - with the performance of the blown diffuser likely to give it a benchmark on its ability to take the fight to Red Bull Racing.

Although removing the blown diffuser is a setback for McLaren's hopes at Silverstone, the performance of the car in recent races means the outfit still has the chance of taking a decent haul of points with the older exhaust concept.

The exhaust-blown diffusers are far from straightforward to integrate into the cars, and Mercedes GP found it had to compromise its version of the design in Valencia a fortnight ago when it encountered overheating problems caused by the exhaust gases.



its seems hard weekend for Working people. ''hmm''

Mercedes look strong again on a Friday. Will they carry that momentum into quali? Also, all those offs in the Village and Loop complex are a little troubling. Hopefully that stamp that out before quali!

Merc's are normally poor in Qualifying n Race. Last time Rosberg topped practice session and fail to reach q3 :rofl:

It didn't work for Mercedes last race, Ferrari failed and Red Bull took 3 races to get f-duct right . So not a big deal.

It will cost them here: lost time doing set-up work etc. McLaren will be strong at the Hockenheimring though

But surely its better for them to race with a car capable of beating the RBs than an unknown?

Interestingly, Force India is doing reasonably well despite no big upgrades :)

No its better to finish first :O ..exhaust blown diffuser heats up rear components.

Yeah, sorry, I meant it IS better to race the older known car than the new one. I always said that a podium would be good here. If you look at the last three races, McLaren have taken more points than they should have done!

I think with McLaren, this upgrade was originally intended for the German GP so they may have rushed it and have decided to abandon it, work on it between now and late July and introduce it properly then.

Force India like fast tracks, at Spa and Monza last year they were awesome and this is the fastest track so far this year. Its a shame Hockenheim isn't in its old format or they'd be super quick there as well. Sutil could well be a darkhorse this weekend, Force India are possibly the 4th quickest team this weekend.
