McLaren: Additional Honda-PS only with the magnifying glass recognizable

Monday, September 4th, 2017 | Sports

(cafetheology.org) – As expected, there was nothing to pick for McLaren at the weekend in Monza. Although Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne were still able to fight in the midfield, the goal flag did not see both at the end – and points would not have been anyway. "At Stoffel, it was again the MGU-K," says race manager Eric Boullier, adding: "At Fernando, we had a problem with the gearbox at the start of the race." Alonso also had problems with cooling. "That's why we decided to stop the car because we were afraid it would break," explains the Frenchman. The big theme in Woking, however, remains the engine. McLaren is still trying to get out of the contract with Honda. But the change to Renault is difficult. The belief in the Japanese seems to have been lost a long time ago. Also the new engine specification 3.7, which was used in Monza, does not meet the expectations in Woking by far. "We can see some progress on the data, so I'm satisfied," Boullier said, agreeing first with Hondas Motorschef Yusuke Hasegawa. Only shortly afterwards, however, send again a top direction Japan. When asked if it was a great advance, he declared sarcastically: "Yes – it just depends on how close you are zooming in." In other words, the Honda progress is more visible. In addition, it is known not only to the performance, but the reliability is still not under control. This was also reflected in Monza again. There, Alonso and Vandoorne collected 60 penalty places. And because the drive with the Belgian in the race already broken again, now threatens in Singapore already the next punishment. "You can fix it," says Boullier, cautiously optimistic, explaining, "Even the engine yesterday (in qualifying, ed.) Would have been repaired, but we missed the time before the race." McLaren- Meanwhile, legend Mika Häkkinen is trying to give the team courage. "McLaren is working very hard," he explains in a Facebook live video on the official Formula One channel. "I've been at McLaren for many years before I won my first win, but with hard work and a positive attitude, it will happen," says the World Champion from 1998 and 1999. "There is always work, and if you are second, that means that you are doing a bad job, "added the Finn, who started for McLaren between 1993 and 2001. He won his first victory in Jerez at the 1997 season finale. He is therefore convinced that McLaren should remain patient. "It's going to happen, it's just a matter of time," he says.
