Revamped McLaren have title shot'
26 July 2012, 12:45
Briton Lewis Hamilton believes he and the McLaren team will mount a
serious title bid in the second half of this season, starting with the
upcoming Hungarian Grand Prix.
The 2008 drivers' champion, who was forced to retire from last Sunday's
German Grand Prix at Hockenheim, said he can challenge for victory this
weekend at Budapest's Hungaroring circuit based on the McLaren team's
overall performance and speed last weekend.
Hamilton's teammate Jenson Button took second at Hockenheim behind the
triumphant Fernando Alonso of Ferrari, who leads the title race.
Hamilton was forced out of the race with a gearbox problem after earlier
snags including a puncture collected on lap two, but said the weekend
left him optimistic.
