    Honda and no Alonso is better than Renault with Alonso...do you really think he isn't going to complain about that engine after a couple of races without results? (Or not good enough results)

    Alonso is like that girl who's amazing in bed but terrible to live with. Since an F1 contract is essentially a marriage, it's probably not a good idea to hire him unless you're someone such as Briatore who had the drive and the resources to please his every wish.

    Alonso is Alonso, but I hope Stoffel Vandoorne finally gets a combination up to his skills.
    I feel sorry for both of them, having to drive such a disaster like the actual Honda power unit...
    After three years they still aren't up to pace.

    How does Toro Rosso benefit out of this? Honda money?

    Agreed. And I have way more faith that Honda will get it's act together than Renault will improve much. It's had one year less and got an impossible size zero to work with from McLaren( not their choice, they could have just copied Merc's concept). So in the worst case they will be equal, but even then Honda brings money while Renault costs money(if I were at Red Bull I wouldn't pay that bill until it performed AND held together ). So I totally understand Red Bull for seeing if the grass really is greener on the other side.
    If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.

    Today it's not whining, it's pounding himself on the chest how great he is doing in that atrocity of a car(even if Stoffel is ahead of him ). Basically he's asking his team to take a virtual bow

    I think I'd settle for his 30 million dollar paycheck and leave the team it's dignity....

    They become a factory backed team and start smashing McLaren, Renault, Williams ET al.
    Then rbr take the Honda pu too and start bagging championships.
    All the while: Alonso has moved on and McLaren languishes mid field

    I see it as a failure of the new management. It's just to keep Alonso and the shareholders happy. I'm not surprised considering Brown is American, but it's just like cutting your legs off in order to fit into an MX5. If Dennis was faced with the same problem, he would first hold a 2hour speech that gives us 0 information, then kick the MX5 off the stage, and bring in an S2000 and 5-6 nude models even tho the S2000 is a two-seater, and while he's in a corner, it would snap, they would all die and then Dennis would hold another 2 hour speech that gives us even more words than last time, with even less information.

    I wouldn't be surprised if within 5 years we start seeing wikipedia descriptions like:
    McLaren Racing Limited, competing as McDonalds McLaren Chevrolet 7up, is a British racing team competing in the McDonalds Monster Energy Formula One Cup Doritos Bepis series sponsored by Norco Fuel and Coca-Cola.
