McLaren still targets championship title



Aug.16 – Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team Principal Martin Whitmarsh still thinking surpass Championship leader Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull Racing and get Championship title

Reigning Champ Vettel now 85-point ahead over nearest rival and his team-mate Mark Webber and is 88 points margin over the McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton. And Red Bull Racing still go ahead in the constructor’s championship is a extensive 103 points.

“I think it’s though, but it’s possible,” Whitmarsh told Autosport. “And winning races is tough, but I think all you can do is try to win every race, and you can’t do more than that. It is difficult to pull back the gap, but it’s possible. Of course people focus on the championship, but I think if you are not leading the championship then you can’t worry too much about it. I’d like a one-two and it’d be handy if a Red Bull was not the third car on the podium if we get a one-two, and so we’d welcome Ferrari on the podium as well. We never give up. We’ve never been a quitter and this time isn’t one. Whatever happens we are going to try to win every race and that’s the great challenge.”

McLaren Mercedes team Principal also said that the latest run of back-to-back McLaren wins had given the team energy over the mid-season break, and that it needed to continue it throughout the rest of the year.

“If you had asked my in Australia to give you a prediction I couldn’t have given you one. What I can predict is that we will be working bloody hard trying to win every race that we can. We have two great drivers, a great team, the car’s not bad, we’ve made some good progress. We can keep this momentum and then we can win more races and the championship is possible. Tough, but possible.”
