McLaren drivers: we are the ones to beat in Montreal

The McLaren drivers have said that they believe they are the team to beat in next weekend’s Canadian Grand Prix.

Both Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button believe the momentum lies with them and that the Circuit de Gilles Villeneuve will suit their car.

“Our car should be well suited to this track; we have a great engine, the best KERS Hybrid system in the sport and excellent traction out of slow corners,” said Hamilton.

“All in all, it’s set to be another good weekend for us I’ll be looking for a strong result on Sunday.”

Jenson Button said that his outfit’s race pace was good enough to dominate.

“There’s a real momentum within our team at the moment I think we had a race car good enough to win in both Spain and Monaco; with a little improvement to our qualifying, I think we can start to dictate race pace, which was something we were briefly able to show at both of the last two races.”
