McLaren only finished ninth with their new Honda power units, their worst Constructors’ Championship position since 1980, when they scored just 11 points.
McLaren used three drivers in 2015, sort of, but Kevin Magnussen wasn’t even able to start the race and qualified behind Button so I’m not going to even have him in these stats.
Not very much here, Button finished ahead of Alonso in the championship but not by much, McLaren really did not score many points.
|Driver||Race Finish||Started Ahead||Qualified Ahead||Faster Race Lap|
Head to head, there’s not much between them, in qualifying Alonso is ahead, despite not being involved in the Australian GP. Race finishes are tight too, but with so many retirements it’s hard to really compare properly.
|Driver||Out of Q1||Out of Q2||Into Q3|
No Q3s for either driver but Button was knocked out of Q1 a few times more than Alonso was.
|Driver||Average Qualifying||Average Finish||Top 10s||Retirements|
The final table for today and shows much of the same as the other tables, Alonso has been better in qualifying but Button better (or luckier with power units) in the races. The average finish is almost identical but Button had two more points finishes and Alonso two more retirements.
