Jenson Button, Mc Laren Driver said, “For 2013, we are hoping for a better and faster car that would enable us to win this time. I hope there would be no errors for 2013. MP4-27 must have been a stunning car, but due to some failures, we ended up with some faulty results just like in the race in Malaysia and China. However, my co-driver and I are wishing for the best this season.”

One of the few weaknesses of the Mc Laren car in 2012 was its performance when driving on wet roads. The tyres are too much difficult to perform. This was the result of the rain-hit qualifying sessions in Britain and Germany where Hamilton and Button, the constructor’s driver neither made it into the top five. In the nine races in 2012 followed by summer break, the team efforts paid off with four wins and five pole positions. However, their scores fell due to their unreliable car.

The MP4-27 was the quickest car of the year analysis has shown. Based on the German language Speed Week, even Ferrari and Red Bull landed on the title, it was Mc Laren that is consistently the fastest car according to the average leaps throughout the 20-grand prix season 2012.

According to the fastest race laps for 2012, McLaren was 1.8 tenths apart from perfection, while Red Bull on second with 3.8 tenths off the best, followed by Lotus at seven tenths.
