McLaren is a new Williams.

78 consecutive races without a podium finish.

Already longer than the longest such streak in Williams' history (which was 62 races from Singapore 2008 to Spain 2012 if I count this right). A bit surprising considering the fact how much a symbol of the past glory we were between 2006 and 2013 and McLaren doesn't seem to have earned such reputation to the same extent nowadays.

Mclaren have had the Honda scapegoat for too long. They need to have their @#$%& handed to them with the Renault engine.

Their crisis is alot different.If we stop getting results means less money, less sponsers, harder to inject money to turn things around unless choose to go for pay drivers which only makes things hard...this downward spiral is so hard to get out, and looks more dangerous...the team can be collapsed.

Mclaren did very well to stablish their road cars project which has turned to be benefitical over the years.somehow they are like Ferrari in a smaller scale...selling cars to go racing.so those negativities won't show in a way that was shown in our team: No talk of collapse, no talk of sellout, no talk of pay drivers.

It doesn't hurt having a tonne of Saudi money as an investor either.

I would argue that they haven't been a top team since 2012.
2011: 2nd in WCC with Button 2nd in WDC
2012: 8 PPs and 7 race wins

If you think McLaren was a top team in 2010, why wouldn't you classify them as a top team in 2011 and 2012?
