Boullier: Next six months critical

Boullier: Next six months critical

Eric Boullier insists everyone at McLaren remains motivated and determined to keep pushing as hard as possible for the remainder of the season.

Having gone the 2013 season without a race victory, the team are once again finding themselves in midfield this season with Jenson Button and Kevin Magnussen struggling to keep up with the likes of Mercedes and Williams.

The team, though, have showed improvement in recent races and they will be looking to keep that up when they travel to Hungary, a place where they have had plenty of success.

"McLaren has a fantastic record in Hungary - we've won 11 grands prix there - and, while it's unlikely we'll be in a position to win this year, I think we travel to Budapest feeling encouraged by a number of our recent performances," racing director Boullier said.

"We know there's still a lot to do, but there's a feeling that the whole team's motivation is growing."

This weekend's race at the Hungaroring marks the final grand prix before the summer break and Boullier feels it is important for McLaren to get a positive result.

"It's always beneficial to go into the summer break with a positive result, so we'll be trying hard to do just that; even more important, it's essential that we maintain our focus and determination with regard to car development," he said.

"The next six months will be critical for everybody at McLaren, and we'll be working as hard as possible to keep on pushing."
