Formula 1 team McLaren-Mercedes is one of the oldest teams in the history of the Royal race. The history of McLaren performances began in 1966 under the leadership of Bruce McLaren in the memorable Grand Prix of Monaco. In his first season, Bruce McLaren zanyal14 place in the overall standings of pilots. The first successes of the team began to show after two years. 1968 for the McLaren team can be called a breakthrough. That year the team won their first Grand Prix and finished second in the Constructors' Championship. Since the beginning of 1970 the team began to pursue failure - death of Bruce McLaren, the failure of the Formula 1 season, unsuccessful performance of the second pilot Denny Hulme. After the death of Bruce McLaren team for a long time to reorganize in an attempt to bring the work to the desired level. The first championship race car appeared in 1974. The driver Emerson Fittipaldi had a great season and won the championship, leaving behind the Ferrari. It was a real triumph, which topped the list of winning team McLaren. In the future, for the team were famous racers, a year has been a failure and a triumph. The history of the team continues to this day. A new era in the team began with the arrival of the young British driver Lewis Hamilton. In his rookie season in 2007, the Briton did not have just one point to become world champion. The following season, 2008 Lewis made up for lost time. In the last Grand Prix of Brazil, he pulled out a victory, finishing in fifth place. Thus, Lewis Hamilton became the youngest world champion, McLaren and the team returned to the leadership position. The 2009 season was tough for all teams - the new regulations, new regulations, new requirements. Engineers could not build a team capable of a competitive car and the first part of the season McLaren were not at the helm. When the machine was developed, riders started showing good results. However, this was not enough for the new title. Ahead of the new season and new developments. Team McLaren has already shown his new car. Judging from past tests, this machine is very fast, which suggests that the pilots of the team will fight for a world title. Especially in this season for the team will be performing two real champion - a champion 2008 Lewis Hamilton and the other reigning champion Jenson Button, who has signed a long term contract with the team. Such a star cast gives great promise.

Or form your own group of experts in the field of engines, consisting of different companies to help Honda faster to find a more effective solution.Unfortunately, none of the proposals has not been adequately studied, and as a result we have exhausted the arguments. We had come to the conclusion that there is no other way, except for the termination of cooperation."McLaren will use customer Renault engines next year.

Champion 1997 Jacques Villeneuve criticized the decision Toro Rosso to switch to Honda engines, abandoned by team McLaren.Jacques Villeneuve "McLaren is pleased that Honda refused, so I don't understand the Toro Rosso. Have they not seen what has happened in the last three years Maybe now they will have more money thanks to the cooperation with Honda.

Season 2018 seven vacancies

In the course of Grand Prix of Singapore became aware of the extension of the contracts of Valtteri Bottas, the pilots Force India, and also about the transfer of Carlos Sainz in the Renault. The teams are still seven vacancies, one of which may take Daniil Kvyat.Williams - 2 wakasiyaka no contracts with the pilots, but there is no doubt that lance Stroll will stay in the team, given the investment made by Strolla senior.In a couple of Canadians who will soon turn 19 years old, Williams is seeking an experienced pilot, over the age of 25 - this requirement is title sponsor Martini. Until recently, Felipe Massa remained the only candidate for this place, but first started talking about Paul di Resta, which now appears to be backup pilot of the team, and then about Robert Kubica. Kubica first tested in the part of Renault, but there chose Carlos Sainz, and now Robert is actively training in the simulator Williams.Another candidate - Marcus Ericsson, who may lose the place in the Sauber. The only advantage of the Swede is a solid set of sponsors.Toro Rosso - 2 vakansiyalar Sainz goes to Renault, and with high probability it will be replaced by Frenchman Pierre went Out - other suitable pilots in the Red Bull yet.Obviously, stay Sainz in the Toro Rosso, then went Out would take place Daniil Kvyat. Now, the Russian pilot has a chance to keep his job, it's important to make mistakes in the remaining races.Meanwhile, a new partner Honda want to see in the ranks of Toro Rosso its pilot Nobuharu Matsushita, which now appears in the Formula-2. It is not clear in what capacity - possibly as a test pilot. If the Japanese insist on the place of combat pilot, it is easy to guess that it will go with Cuatom.Few people know that now Matsushita listed as a pilot for the development of the McLaren-Honda. However, before the combat cars are not all limited to work in the simulator.McLaren - 1 vakantiecentrum with Stoffel Vendorno confirmed a month ago that negotiations with Fernando Alonso go. Earlier two-time champion reiterated that he would remain at McLaren, if the team change engine supplier. It happened, and now, as far as we know, Alonso and the McLaren management to discuss details of the new contract. Most likely, the agreement will be signed for one season to sign a contract for a longer period, the Spaniard just will not risk it.If Alonso refuses though it goes nowhere, then McLaren, in the words of Zac brown, have a plan "B". Obviously, this refers to Jenson button. Lando Norris, who will soon turn 18, they're unlikely to be put into a fighting machine.Sauber - 2 vacanciel contract extension with Ferrari Sauber head of Frederic Vasseur said he was willing to give one or even two seats for the wards of the Scuderia. Obviously, in return, the porters expect to receive discounts on the powerplant, gearbox and other components that will deliver Maranello.Ferrari has Antonio Giovinazzi and Charles Leclere, who in the course of this season, was repeatedly brought to the tests. And Giovinazzi even held two races, replacing the injured Pascal Wehrlein. If Ferrari is willing to pay for seats of both pilots, no place will be Marcus Ericsson. If the Scuderia will pull only one place, it is likely that Eriksson and his sponsors will remain in the Sauber.Without mestis the above it follows that in the season of 2018, we will not see on the grid protege Mercedes of Pascal Wehrlein. In the customer team Force India all the seats were occupied, and in Williams he victims. Perhaps he will remain in Formula 1 as a backup pilot factory team Mercedes.

In this situation, you're just a passenger, nothing you can do. Unfortunately, the blow was too strong for my car. From the cockpit you don't understand how strong the damage, but the car abruptly lost his speed, I developed a severe oversteer, so I asked the team about what damage. But they had nothing to say, because they have lost all communication with the machine.At the end of my race car appeared serious problems with electronics, and we had to stop. These things sometimes happen in racing, and, unfortunately, it happened today with us. We had such high hopes for this race, and in wet conditions we are very strong, so the disappointment is so great.Despite my disappointment in fact it was a positive and fun weekend - the team did a great job, and I'll hope for the best result in Sepang in two weeks".

I retired in 2001, and everything was fine. But after a few years I had a certain feeling. I felt mentally and physically ready to return to Formula 1.I practiced a lot. I flew to England to work in the simulator McLaren. I've spent a lot of days. It was probably 2004 or 2005. I was fully prepared to return to Formula-1. And as two-time champion I knew how to be ready for it, I would have been better than ever. I was negotiating with Williams, but it didn't work. This was largely because the negotiations were up and down. I didn't like it.Finns are very black and white. If you do something, you will do it. You go straight to the point. And while I understand that this is a complex case, but they couldn't get a better pilot than the double world champion.There were other problems. And it was not about a crazy amount of money, which could not be considered. There were other problems that influenced the decision.I tested the McLaren, drove the car all day, dashed in many circles after all these years, and all went well. We all analyzed. I knew about the problem with a computer that constantly blocked the wheels. We couldn't do anything about it. We are unable to fix it because we didn't have new items.This Is Formula 1. This is a permanent solution to the problems, it's constant suffering. I wanted to get back to thisI had a reason. If I return, I will again work with the same issues. Fortunately, the tests went smoothly.I got into Formula 1 in 1991. It took me seven years to win the race. The same thing could happen on the return. I'm not going to waste seven years. After winning two Championships I can be satisfied with their achievements".
