MaClaren ? Honda?

Oh dear oh dear, what a mess.  Do you remember all those years ago Jenson Button sitting with his head in his hands almost in tears at Honda F1? The same team that Ross Braun turned into World Champions who were then bought out by Mercedes.  I wonder what that team is doing now…..

So the question is what does Ron Dennis do now, go back to Mercedes cap in hand for his engines? no point using a Renault engine you only have to look at Red Bull. How about Mclaren – Ferrari or perhaps Ferrari – Mclaren?

Alonso and Button two former World Champions it has to be asked how many more excuses can they trot out?  Honda had two years to develop this piece of rubbish, cut your losses Ron.

Montreal was a strange race, Rosberg looked very smooth and I thought he could win this, but then I looked at the Mercedes garage, no he isn’t.  Hamilton was most erratic all through practice. The car was on the ragged edge perhaps he really had to push it to win, with strange radio communications over fuel.  One thing Hamilton really needs to check is his pit lane speed limiter. Both tyre changes were similar plus Rosberg made an error while Hamilton was in but they were closer together when Rosberg came out.

As for Vettle well he was unlucky during qualifying with a technical problem, however during the race he was very fast and at times dangerous. We all like overtaking but forcing other drivers off the track is not acceptable.  He has got away with these type of actions before, remember when Vettle T-boned Button? he carried on racing but Button had to retire.  Black flag? or Spoilt child? the one thing I have noticed is that Alan Jones as a steward is something of a safety dinosaur in some cases.

It was good to see Williams back on the Podium. Clare is doing a great job there, but Frank is like the Ghost of Christmas yet to come he seems to cast a pall over the place.

Finally Montreal needs to develop, perhaps they could build an extension to the island, I thought it all looked very crowded and small.  Now a-days nobody can stand still especially in sport you only go backwards.

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
