The McLaren Principal into the fourth round of the 2010 season in considerably better shape in assessment to this time last year – when the team, having newly suffered the Lie-gate disgrace, had four times less points than leaders Brawn in the in general standings – while Martin makes no secret of the fact that a marked development is the targets.
By our own very high standards, we’ve not fully met our very high expectations in the first three races, despite having what we feel is the necessary race pace to compete at the front and despite having won the Australian Grand Prix, Whitmarsh explained. That might sound overly self-critical, given that we are second in the Constructors’ Championship and given that Jenson and Lewis are both close to the top of the Drivers’ Championship, but that’s merely a reflection of the fact that we at Vodafone McLaren Mercedes aim to excel at all times.
Concerning the purpose ‘as a positive’, Whitmarsh at this time plan to ‘eliminate mistakes’ in order to rise a universally stronger championship assault. One of the most characters of this team is its significant strength in depth, he sustained. After establishing a strong and solid start to the season, we’re confident that we’ll become an even more formidable contender as we head into China and then the start of the European season.
