F1 - Spa - McLaren preview

There is no formal press release from Vodafone McLaren Mercedes yet but they have released this video preview from Jenson Button.

Also, McLaren MD has been talking to the press and had this to say about their season so far:

"I think we were out-developed around Easter time by some of our competitors and I think we have out developed our competitors through June.

July and August are still being played out so we will see. There is only a tenth or two separating each car over a lap, so it is still very marginal.

It is exciting for the fans and spectators with many different drivers winning different races and different teams coming to the fore and dropping back again and we look forward to that.

The last race was obviously very pleasing. It was the 150th pole position for the team which we should be very proud of. Lewis showed good pace in Hungary. I think that the updates we brought to the car in Germany and Hungary have definitely increased a degree of competitiveness to us, but we can't take anything for granted.

"It was very pleasing to see Jenson in fourth place having a strong qualifying as well. So we have reasons to believe we are making progress but it was a very tight race and I think it will be in the next few races as well."
