McLaren duo back team to recover
McLaren duo Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button have backed their team to recover from its mid-season slump in form, after a troubling British Grand Prix weekend. With the outfit having slipped back from being Red Bull Racing's main challengers at the start of the campaign, Hamilton and Button have endured difficult times in recent races that has seen them fall away from runaway points leader Sebastian Vettel. Team principal Martin Whitmarsh admitted at Silverstone that the team's title hopes were now looking slim, and that its target was simply to get itself back into a position to win races later this campaign.
