SUZUKA, Japan -- McLaren-Hondas lack of competitiveness during qualifying for the Japanese Grand Prix is not just down to the power units lack of power, according to team bosses Eric Boullier and Yusuke Hasegawa.Despite talking up its chances in the build-up to the weekend, the McLaren-Hondas qualified 15th and 17th at the Japanese engine manufacturers home race. The result came just one week after Jenson Button qualified ninth at the Malaysian Grand Prix and Fernando Alonso overcame a 45-place grid penalty to finish seventh.McLaren has previously boasted about having one of the best chassis on the grid, but in Japan it qualified behind both Toro Rossos, which use a less powerful, year-old Ferrari power unit. McLaren racing director Boullier admitted the problem in Suzuka was not simply a lack of power, but a lack of performance from the chassis as well.We [McLaren and Honda] both do everything we can, he said. Obviously Honda entered Formula One not a very long time ago, so they are still obviously catching up with the others. We have decided on the McLaren side to reset our car philosophy last year, so we are catching up as well.There are some car attitudes that are conditioned by some kinds of corners where we are not the best. We know we are the best in some other type of corners, because there is some GPS traces available on the market to compare. This track doesnt suit our chassis and obviously oon the engine side we are not on the same performance level of Mercedes, so both combined make it a difficult weekend for us.ddddddddddddOn other track layouts we are surprisingly better just because for the same reasons we can exploit better the PU and we can use the car in some different attitudes where we know we are strong and we can be maybe the best chassis as well in some conditions.Asked where the McLaren would be with a Mercedes power unit, Boullier added: I dont think this weekend it would be at the top of the grid, but it would definitely be in a much better position.Honda F1 boss Hasegawa added: Its very tough [in Suzuka] and its a challenge for everything -- for the power unit, the downforce and the driver as well. Of course we need more power and maybe we can improve substantially [in all areas], apart from driver performance, I think.He joked: The positive side is Im proud we have some very good sake!Alonso took the 45-place grid penalty in Malaysia in order to use Hondas new and updated engine without penalty in Japan.Of course it is very disappointing and we expect more, Hasegawa said. The car characteristics are not suited to this circuit, so it is very unfortunate. But we took a great penalty in Malaysia, which was in preparation for this event of course. ' ' '
