Canadian GP

This weekend is the Canadian Grand Prix at the Gilles Villenueve Circuit in Montreal. The McLaren team just completed a test session at Paul Ricard and feel confident going into Montreal.  McLaren CEO Martin Whitmarsh talked about the Canadian and United States races on Fox Sports web site.
"As both tracks have similar characteristics, dominated by long, fast straights and hard braking zones, we have been working through aero, set-up and brake work. "The adaptability of Paul Ricard has allowed us to simulate the conditions at the two North American races, and the aero testing has included the wing packages for the events," he added.
After last year I thought McLaren would be competing for the championship this year.  I want to like this team but they seem to take one step forward and two steps back.
