I have said before this car needs forgetting and concentrate on next years.
this design/development path Paddy chose is all wrong.

Patrick has probably worked that out already.

Last years car was a concoction and this one is just as bad.

I actually think this is last years car with some of its issues ironed out. I don't know where I read it, but there was a suggestion that McLaren's poor years with Adrian Newey were down to Paddy Lowe and the team believing they could iron out the mistakes they'd built into a duff car, and all would be well the following year. And it wasn't of course. This year smacks of that approach.

In this age of cars being better on some circuits than others (unless you have mega bucks to spend), I'd hoped that this years car would be competitive somewhere. I'm no longer convinced this one will be the case unless they bring some big updates soon.
