Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Team principal Martin Whitmarsh says that Lewis Hamilton will shine this weekend at Abu Dhabi, and he remembering Hamilton’s extremely impressive track record at Yas Marian, 2009 pole position and 2010 fastest lap with podium finish.

In addition Whitmarsh congratulates last race weekend Indian Grand Prix, and he added McLaren will continuing to bring new developments to the car and fighting every bit as hard, and McLaren did at the first race in Australia back in March.

“The Indian Grand Prix two weeks ago was a unique achievement for Formula 1, and next weekend’s race in Abu Dhabi will be another pinnacle for the sport at probably the most futuristic and impressive circuit on the calendar.” Whitmarsh said.

“Jenson was quick and incredibly consistent in India, putting us in a position where we could be a little bit adventurous with the tyre strategy and put the leader under greater pressure. I know Lewis was disappointed with the outcome of his own race but that will not affect his preparations for the next challenge. He has an extremely impressive track record in Abu Dhabi, starting from pole position in 2009 and setting the fastest lap on his way to the podium in 2010, so I’m very confident that he’ll shine this weekend.”

“At Vodafone McLaren Mercedes we approach every grand prix with one aim: to win it. So while we can never be entirely happy with finishing second, as we did in India, we can be satisfied that we maximised the technical package we had and look at ways to go one better for the next race. Even though we’ve secured second place in the Constructors’ Championship, and Jenson has a very healthy margin in second place in the drivers’ championship, the season isn’t over for us by any means. We’re continuing to bring new developments to our car and we’ll be fighting every bit as hard as we did at the first race in Australia back in March.”
