    Pretty excited about the upcoming French GP.

    Paul Ricard is the first track I remember watching a kid. This is a bucket list race to attend for me.

    Yeah they pretty much had no choice. This is more about the next engine formula.

    The blue lines all around the track in France look really weird!

    Looks like alot of issues at McLaren home base.

    McLaren F1 staff revolt over 25p chocolate bars given to them as a reward for their hard work

    McLaren's Formula One staff are considering strike action after being rewarded for their hard work with a chocolate bar each.
    Irate workers have contacted Sportsmail to complain about the atmosphere within the struggling team, describing it as ‘toxic’ and their bosses as ‘clueless’.
    One employee, speaking under the guarantee of anonymity, said: ‘We have been working all hours of the day, sweating blood, and they give us 25p Freddo bars.

    ‘That shows how clueless they are,’ added the employee. ‘They told us at the post-Canadian Grand Prix debrief that they knew what was wrong with the car but not how to fix it. They ask us when they are on six-figure salaries.


    ‘We call four of the management the “Untouchables”. There is Eric Boullier, racing director, Matt Morris, chief engineer, Simon Roberts, chief operating officer, and David Probyn, operations director. Some of them just walk about chatting. We have no respect for them. People are beginning to boycott the debriefs because they are a joke. The atmosphere is toxic. We would like to go on strike but people fear for their jobs.’


    http://www.f1undercover.com/boullier...-a-journalist/


    Last weekend, McEvoy quoted former team boss Martin Whitmarsh as saying that there is unrest within the company, and that he himself had expressed his fears for the team to (shareholder) Mansour Ojjeh during a visit to the Spanish Grand Prix.
    Today, McEvoy quoted a source within the team who described the atmosphere at Woking as “toxic” and senior management, including Boullier, as clueless.


    It all started well enough this afternoon at the official FIA press conference, when McEvoy asked Boullier if he felt a responsibility for the team’s failings, the Frenchman replied: “That’s a good question…
    “Obviously, we are all responsible for the car performance,” he continued. “No, I will not resign, to answer your question. I know you have written some articles. I’ve got my twentieth year now in racing, I’ve won races and championships with every team I’ve managed before, including Formula One, so this is some record that you cannot take away from me.


    “I think we’re on a journey. We are not where we want to be, we are not happy with where we are – but with the journey, with the new Renault engine partner, and obviously we have a good team of people, we just need to make sure we are finding the issues with the car and correct them. We know where the issues with the car are, and make sure… when you build a car, when you believe in a concept, you have to develop the concept and make sure you correct if for the next one.”


    “To go back to the Freddo thing, will you be reviewing how you hand out Freddos at the factory?” asked McEvoy. “Will you stick with the Freddo rewards or do they stop?”


    “I think if you did a course in management we can organise this for you,” replied Boullier. “And if you’re really desperate to test the Freddo chocolate, we can send a box to you, don’t worry.
    “Thank you. Thank you for that offer,” said McEvoy. “Could I just say…


    “That’s enough of it,” snapped Boullier. “You’re looking after something, we will give you any answers later but I think it’s enough.


    “No, no, it’s not enough,” insisted McEvoy. “Do you expect to still be in your job at Silverstone?”
    “Yes. Of course,” came the reply. “It’s a journey. It’s not a plug and play story. It’s a journey when you have to work too. You’re after me, apparently…

    Wonder what happened to McLaren's "best chassis on the grid" that they had last year?

    They should have stuck to honda so at least they have a scapegoat for all of their problems. Now that they are powered by Renault and can be compared to two other teams running the same engine, they are really getting exposed as to how full of sh*t they really are

    I suspect the staff "unrest" is the problem.
    The car needs to be setup for each track, I'll bet the techs aren't getting what they need or just sabotaging the works in spite.

    My other car is 10 motorcycles that don't start

    I'm still not entirely sure this was anything more than a racing incident:
