Interview with Martin Whitmarsh:
"We've got to win all remaining Grands Prix"


The British Grand Prix highlighted McLaren's strengths and weaknesses this season: outstanding drivers and the fastest car make them candidates for a 1-2 at any given race. Poor mechanical reliability could cost them the World Championship. McLaren CEO Martin Whitmarsh talks to Adam Cooper about Juan Pablo Montoya's dominant win in the British Grand Prix, Kimi Raikkonen's blitz to the podium in the last couple of races, and the mistakes the team need to avoid for the rest of the season

Missed Opportunities
At one point during the British Grand Prix, it looked possible that Renault's Giancarlo Fisichella could take a surprise win, given the right strategy. So when Renault brought the Italian in for his second pitstop seemingly earlier than expected, some felt the team was deliberately compromising his chances for the sake of teammate Fernando Alonso's Championship battle. Fisichella, of course, stalled in his pitstop, which eliminated him altogether from the Silverstone podium. But could he have otherwise won? Tony Dodgins analyses Renault's strategy and its outcome

Therefore, the Formula One teams showed up for the British Grand Prix with their French updates, some bolstered with new parts.
