McLaren still very confident that they will grab 2012 world championship, the Woking based team struggled in Monaco GP, Hamilton finished fifth position stared from the third and his team-mate Jenson Button takes great effort make top ten finish but his ended sadly with a tyre puncture.
“We were not quite quick enough and it did not quite go our way in the race,” he explained. “With one lap to go we were within three seconds off the leader, but on this track if you have a lot of cars between you and the leader it is very difficult to do anything about it.
“You are never satisfied in F1, but Lewis is scoring points at every race, he is keeping his head and doing a very good job. This title is still anyone’s to play for. We, Lewis and Jenson, can win this year’s championship.”
Whitmarsh added that Jenson struggled with his tyres, and it is likely that efforts will be ramped up by the team in advance of the Canadian GP to make modification to the way it operates to help him.
“I think he is struggling a little bit with tyre energy,” said Whitmarsh about Button. “In this race he spent his time behind someone all the way through.
“We had him on the prime tyre, he was looking after his tyres and he ran it long. It was one of those tricky races that ended sadly with a puncture.”
