McLaren CEO Ron Dennis has emphasised that his outfit must return to the top step of the podium in 2014.
McLaren has not won a race since Jenson Button’s victory at the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2012 but Dennis insists that his squad can win races later this season.
“I think we could win races in the later part of the season,” he told the Official F1 website. “I want to see a linear progression because we must end the season winning. This has to be our objective. We can’t win today. The fact is that F1 is less cyclical as a sport. We used to have a very clear winter closure – now it’s continuous. So if we don’t have the luxury of some regulation changes, we have to be competitive as soon as possible this year- and we will be!”
