McLaren stuck in the pits whilst Gasly in the STR-Honda quietly clocks up
the laps and is fourth fastest at lunchtime.

Hold on, that additional billion that Honda spent seems to have helped
but come on, it will explode, fail and run out of gas soon enough.

or maybe it had more to do with the McLaren implementation than was
admitted or recognised.

I have thought that since I read that McLaren rejected the first two of
Honda's engine designs as they were too bulky and would not fit in a
size zero car! That was back near the beginning of 2015. I just could
not believe that the two companies would not have communicated on what
size and configuration the engine/PU should be.

Yup, reckon Mclaren have well and truly c**ked up this year. And Red Bull next year will run a mighty Honda engine.

Well such a scenario is not entirely impossible but there are a couple
of things you don't mention.
First those Honda clowns would not have spent that additional billion last
year when they would not have been sacked by McLaren.
It is only after this public humiliation they finally seem to have have
tested something.

Second beating the second slowest PU does not make them world champions,
the PU to beat still is Mercedes.

Then we have to wait and see if that honda thing delivers this year or
next year, that about -next year- is what they tell us for three years
now but they never did.

Now do you want to put money on Honda beating McLaren this year?
