Motor Sport News - - F1 Preview: Teams -

The fact that Mclaren is herald­ing its pre-sea­son test by point­ing to the fact that it com­pleted more laps than last year is a mark of where the team is at.

The truly woe­ful Honda mo­tor from last year has been re­worked (be­cause it needed to be), Mclaren has an ef­fi­cient chas­sis and it has ar­guably the strong­est drive line-up.

Its test pace showed that, while the out­fit is solidly in the middle of the pack, the jump for­ward hasn’t yet come. But the boffins back in Wok­ing are pleased that, un­like 12 months ago, at least they have some num­bers to crunch.
