It was a very disappointing display from McLaren who only picked up 1 point, after that it’s a miracle that they still have such a huge lead of 18 points. Lotus were the most impressive team last weekend, they picked up 18 points. Ferrari and Williams both picked up large points due to Maldonado’s pole and Fernando qualifying in 2nd.
