It's the fourth consecutive season and McLaren still hasn't woken up from its nightmare, although it has been tried many times to get the team up, but it looks like the issue remains and hasn't yet been resolved until racing director Eric Boullier had left the team. Maybe!

Anyway, unlike the other teams, plenty of descriptions has been given to the team (Management and Technicals) after a recent run of poor results. S, do you think this "recovery" description will workout now for the British outfit team? We hope so!

When Martin Whitmarsh departed the team back in 2014, chairman Ron Dennis has replaced him with Frenchman Boullier after a wholesale modification. The Woking outfit has been "destabilised" since 2010, Brown believes the team is on the way to be healed although amendments are afoot.

Zak Brown explains to diffrenet media sources how and why Mclaren are not compettitve to be a race-winning organization as it used to be:

"The reason the car is not performing on the track is because we're not performing well as a team," Brown, McLaren's executive director (SkyF1)
"What I see is we're too slow to react, we need to simplify things within the organisation and we need to operate like a race team. (SkyF1)

"[McLaren need to become] a much faster organisation, we're a bit too slow and a bit too clunky. That's not any one individual's fault, I know we have got great people here, so it's our ways of working that need to change.(SkyF1)
"Our results this year have demonstrated we have a big performance issues, we are punching well below our weight given the history, the talent of people, the resources and the technology we have at our disposal." (ESPN)
"My job is to get all 700-800 people rowing the same way as quickly as possible, communicating well because it's those people that produce the race car. So we might have a race-car problem, but it's how we built the race car that's actually the real problem." (SkyF1)
"We have done a lot of work behind the scenes and we are now taking measures to rebuild McLaren and to make us a race-winning organisation. We know we owe it to our team, we know we owe it to our partners, we know we owe it to the drivers, we know we owe it to the media, and most importantly we know we owe it to our fans. (ESPN)

"I think we all share in the pain of not seeing a McLaren be successful like we know it can be. It's a completely unacceptable situation we find ourselves in, it is very painful for all of us here at McLaren, but the one thing we will not do is quit. (ESPN)

He added: "But I think we're in a good place now, we've got a good foundation and I want to build on that rather than continue to make changes." (SkyF1)

As soon as Boullier decision has arrived at the table, Mclaren appointed Gil De Ferran ex-sporting director at BAR-Honda from 2005-2007 and former IndyCar champion and the man who helped coach Fernando Alonso at last year's Indy 500 - as an adviser.

"Gil’s a good friend of McLaren," said Brown. "We've brought him on as an advisor to McLaren. We want him to help with our young drivers."
