Formula 1, McLaren won't endure another 'tough year'

Jenson Button announced that McLaren-Honda team, might not be ready for the first race! They solve many problems, and their car is much better now, but they still have problems with their new power unit. This week in Barcelona, on day one, Button’s MP4-30 broke down. Mechanics determine the malfunction and required a new part, which they received after 24 hours, bud the problem wasn’t fixed! Their car broke down in the morning on track. This reminds us on the last two seasons, when McLaren finished on the podium just once! At that time they weren’t quick enough, this season, they have more serious problems!

The main problem is a new power unit. Other teams have experience with power units like this, but Honda doesn’t! As a result, they cannot provide stable and usable power unit. Besides these problems, they are optimistic. Button believes that they will have several improvements in the next few months, and they will be successful in the 2015 season. The potential of the MP4-30 is still unknown, because its reliability problems. Button also announced that their car wouldn’t be very good in the first race, but it will be one of the best in the last race!

These power units are very problematic. You may remember that last year, Renault and Ferrari had driveability and brake-by-wire problems. We know that McLaren has different problems, but we don’t know the details. New F1 cars use too much technology and electronics, so they have many reliability issues, but at the same time they must satisfy many regulations set by the FIA.
