McLaren’s managing director Jonathan Neale admits the team’s troubled MP4-28 is unlikely to become a racewinner across the second half of the 2013 championship. A substantial upgrade package at Hungary boosted the team’s form and led to Jenson Button saying 2013 was not a write-off – echoing team principal Martin Whitmarsh’s call not to give up on victory this year. Neale however says standing on the top step of the podium could prove beyond McLaren’s reach, particularly given the increasing need to devote resources to 2014 development.

Kimi Raikkonen’s hopes of getting his Formula 1 world championship challenge back on track at the British Grand Prix have been boosted with Lotus planning to run its biggest upgrade of the year. The Finn has lost ground to points leader Sebastian Vettel in recent races, and a collision with Sergio Perez in Monaco plus disappointing form in Canada have proven extremely costly. Raikkonen and Lotus are convinced that the return to high-speed tracks like Silverstone will help the team rediscover its form and a major upgrade package is also arriving

Lotus is convinced it will be back on the pace at the British Grand Prix after blaming its struggles in the Canadian Grand Prix on track characteristics. Kimi Raikkonen was lapped by title rival Sebastian Vettel on Sunday, on a weekend when he never appeared to have the pace to fight for victory and finished ninth .
