One of the most disappointing aspects of the 2013 Formula One season has to be the struggles of McLaren.
Actually, correct that. The disappointing aspect of 2013 is McLaren.
It is no secret that Sebastian Vettel’s control over the title race has rubbed several people up the wrong way, but as I argued Monday, at least we are seeing good battles for the other places on the podium.
The biggest shame, therefore, is that neither McLaren driver is ever in these battles.
Jenson Button is used to the fluctuating fortunes of F1 teams by now, but for Sergio Perez this has been an added test he did not expect in his first season at a top team.
Zero podiums for each driver but a handful of decent races hidden in the midst of too many Grands Prix spent scraping into the nether regions of the points.
Is this McLaren’s worst F1 season in history?
