the half-breed 918 will be forgotten soon and nobody will care about it in 10 years time, due to its never ending recalls and piss poor chassis quality that keeps on getting replaced every once a year

Tests will definitely produce better data than McLaren official figures. But McLaren figures are good to begin with.
