Having no customers isn‘t an advantage,I‘d argue it‘s even a disadvantage since you have no direct chassis comparison then

level 2

Having no customers also makes it easier for the parent company to pull the plug and leave F1 completely if the team doesn’t start producing better results.

level 2

Yeah first they lost RB which would give them (ignoring frequent blow ups) decent exposure as an engine in a top 3 team, and 30(?) mil per year and now McLaren. It’s going to be make it or break it in 2020 for Renault of they want to continue in 2021 with the new reg

McLaren Mercedes.

Funny how some time ago this name was right up there as one of the greatest partnerships in F1

Now the Mercedes name alone has stamped itself all over F1 history and McLaren Mercedes just sounds like a side story.

Still, will be great to see the two back again. Maybe Hakkinen can come out of his retirement now.

level 2

Just hope it’s not the first half of 2000s McLaren Mercedes with engines exploding while leading comfortably.

level 2

McLaren Mercedes was my first F1 team back in the day. Those silver Vodafone liveries were amazing.

level 2

McLaren spent one race being the most successful team of the turbo hybrid era.

True pioneers.

level 1

No more Renault engines other than the team themselves. Talk about getting a kick in the nuts when it comes to others trusting your hardware..

level 2

On the bright side. They are finally the fastest team using the Renault pu.

level 2

Could actually lead to Renault pulling out of F1

As much as I’d love to see McLaren Mercedes back, this could end badly if Renault pull the plug on the works team

Wot McLaren potentially getting a Mercedes PU? That would be insane. Would actually love to see that happen. They already have so much history together such an iconic duo.

level 2

Seeing McLaren back into the top teams and with such a great driver line-up is actually really amazing.

And this is coming from a Ferrari fan.

level 2

I think it’s a sign of a somber realization that in middle term they won’t be a top team. So, why don’t have a better PU in the meantime, which might help getting better results.
