Does McLaren now have Formula 1's fastest package?

OPINION: Consistent praise from within the Formula 1 paddock suggests that it's now McLaren, not Red Bull, that has the fastest car. Hyperbole, perhaps, but is there a grain of truth behind that theory?

“I think Red Bull are struggling in certain tracks. Same as us. McLaren is quick everywhere. They're quick in low speed. They're flat in Turn 3 and 9. They were fastest in Turn 5. So I just don't see McLaren having any weakness right now."

Carlos Sainz was effusive in his praise of McLaren's current form, clearly keen to underline the all-round pace that the Woking team seems to have generated over the past few races. That's rather nice of him, you'd say, but he's not the only one.
