McLaren doesn't have problems with tires

The tire does not apply to the problems of the McLaren this year. According to experts, to chassis the McLaren is one of the best in the peloton. One reason for this phenomenon is the McLaren approach to winter work, especially in preparation for the new, wider and more bulky tyres from Pirelli.While Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull have provided test cars for the Italian tyre supplier, it turns out that McLaren also participated actively in the process of developing new formulations.Race Director McLaren Eric bulge "We were the only team who sent an observer to all 24 days of tests, we presented more data requirements that the FIA and Pirelli wanted to give us originally.Thus, from the very beginning we understood well the tires without having to provide a test car".

As a character, Kevin is very much reminds me of Kimi - they're both Scandinavians, who, how to say it better, don't care about politics, and they have no arrogance.The first impression can be misleading because they are struggling to establish a direct connection with you, but when you work with them and know them a little deeper, it becomes clear that they are indeed open.They are similar to cats. If they are afraid you see it. If they are angry, you see it. And it's really good. You know how they think and what they feel.Such people will never tell you one thing, meaning another. They are very direct and honest".

No information about updates Honda

Every day growing rumors that the Union McLaren-Honda will fall apart before the end of the season. I think the last straw for the British team was the race in Montreal, where Honda failed to fulfill the promise to upgrade its extremely unreliable and inefficient power plant.In the race Fernando Alonso out of the race for a few laps before the finish, and not earning almost one hundred percent of points.Race Director McLaren Eric bulge "it's Hard to find words to Express our frustration, our disappointment and our grief. It's just blatant, it's disgusting"Fernando Alonso "After 16 years of performing for me, this gathering does not mean anything, but we need to get points for the work of those men and women who every day work in the factory on the machine.I have no information about the improvement of the engine. I don't work for Honda, and I'm not designers and efficient engines. I'm very disappointed, because McLaren every year gives me a great car".
