Jenson Button breezed by a Haas car today at the first chance he got with DRS. Supposedly the Haas car has a 60hp+ advantage, according to our Lotus friend.

I'm of the opinion that Honda would have smash the WCC far more convincingly than Brawn did, based on a few things. A much bigger budget than Brawn plus Kers which was believed to be worth .3 of second a lap. Its worth pointing out that the Brawn was also essentially a base car, a car with 3 months ...

It's going to come down to how quickly McLaren can get a handle on the set-up, and extracting the maximum from the car.
