Lewis and Mclaren in the dock once again
Let me say that I have been a loyal Mclaren fan for over 20 years now. I remember watching when they were at the high points and equally when they were at the low points.
I feel more than a little disappointed right now….. I have purposely not commented on the lying incident from Australia, in the slim hope that perhaps it was just media hype. Alas it appears not to just be media hype, but rather blatant lies.
The team has a real problem, not only is the car not competitive this season, but there is a culture of misinformation that has crept in. This seems to have grown to the place where lying to gain one additional point is on the cards.
Lewis’s claim that he “was ordered” to say what he had said is shockingly naive in the extreme. You are no child, you know what is right and wrong.
I fear that we are going to enter the dark days at Mclaren once more, unless we are able to turn some stuff around. I hope that Ron Denis is able to still galvanise his team and bring them to the place of winners once more. For this to happen the entire team, including the most senior staff are going to need to humble themselves.
We are needing to see a positive change, one that accepts that they have made serious character errors and shows that they are fixing these. Simply put they need to win without controversy…is this possible? Stop giving the FIA reason to haul out the stick and beat you with it.
I must say that I am teetering at the moment…..
But how about that Brawn team then….
