McLaren needs a bit of pace to 'stay in the hunt'

McLaren admitted that it lacked the speed to muster up a strong result at the British Grand Prix on Sunday raising concerns in its bid for the title this year.

The Woking-based squad added just five points to its tally at its home race and dropped to fourth in the constructors’ championship with Ferrari and Lotus moving ahead.

“It’s hard to understand how we could be leading the race at one point and then fall back to eighth place, especially as our car doesn’t feel bad overall,” wondered Lewis Hamilton who is now 37 points behind the leader in the standings.

“We’re still in the hunt for the world championship – and, if we can find a bit of lap-time, we can stay in the hunt, too,” he added.

Teammate Jenson Button’s poor run continued with a meagre point at Silverstone bringing his score in the last six races to just seven.

“It was good to get a point in my Grand Prix, but of course that’s not what we ought to be doing: we’re a front-running team and we’ve got a bit of work to do to start running at the front again,” Button said. “I don’t think we made any mistakes with our strategy; we’re just not quite quick enough at the moment, that’s all.”
