Hmmm, lets see how it goes. I don't quite see that as a fait accompli.

Although, I could see Red Bull and/or McLaren leapfrogging Ferrari.
McLaren should be happy if they can hold onto the pace they have right now with new engines next year.

McLaren is on route to be the first car on the grid without power unit. They will gain the speeds purely on their chassis magic and gravity put into math equation. After all did you see that qualy lap from Alonso on Texas powertrack? They've ultimately ousted the engines lack of everything on straights and fast corners with heavenly chassis tune up

It would be seriously funny if McLaren ended up with the worst performing engine again next season

It is amazing, the timing of the engine switch announcement and the sudden improvement with the McLaren/Honda package.

Since Alonso is involved, I expect the voodoo to get on Renault and Honda to turn dominant.

It's not much of an improvement if they still can't finish races.
