How do the standings after this year's Spanish GP, compare with last year's race? Norris and Sainz are 10th and 11th, with McLaren 4th in the WCC.

The top 3 teams are even further ahead than last year, with Gasly being the only weak(ish) link.

They also don't have the brilliance of Alonso and the usual strange result early in the season.

I actually think aside from pure points, McLaren are doing better this year.

Hmm, was that the real reason? Will be interesting to find out. I'm somewhat sad because of all the racers past and present that deserve to equal Graham Hill's title it's him and Senna. What it does demonstrate is even with the reliability and technology in use today the triple is still extremely difficult to achieve.

Iíll agree to disagree on that one. Heís a proper racer whoís not afraid to give it a go. As well as the fact he speaks his mind
