The binomial McLaren-Honda has given great moments of glory in Formula 1, and both of Dennis as the Arai in charge of feeding the legend through a huge marketing operation that, finally, turned against them. From the test already saw that the car was really green, and that it not only lacked performance, but above all reliability.

Deficit in classification with respect to the pole, expressed in %.

throughout the year there has been some glimmer of hope, but the usual rule has been that of a propeller is extremely fragile and lacking top-end speed. Not only that, but because the chassis has also not prominent enough as to that in Woking they could feel satisfied for the work done. Without speed. Without reliability. Without sponsors. Without union. What could go bien?

Little negative can be said of two World Champions who have had to endure a year like the one that has already finished. Both have once again demonstrated what many who are ex officio and how much they deserve the prestige they have. Both Alonso and Button have taken out everything that could have been out of the car and have driven with professionalism from the first lap.

Obviously each one with his style, have assimilated even the humor of the situation and have maintained the kind during the time that the car has enabled them to stay on the track, battling at every curve even knowing that in the moment it came to a straight, any effort would be in vain.

The point-technical

The most attention -and criticism – has led to the propellant Honda. Leaving aside the debate about the quality of the chassis, what is certain is that the engine has lacked power and reliability of a mode, really dramatic. One of the main problems has been the part hybrid, that has not worked successfully throughout the year to be unable to recover sufficient energy and with the speed necessary to allow the pilots to have power uniform during each round.

One of the expected changes is the modification of the turbo, it would be greatest to resolve this problem, however, is one of many.
