McLaren to fight for R89m prize

2012-11-21 11:51

STILL IN THE TITLE HUNT: McLaren's Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button will have to beat Ferrari's Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa in Brazil if they hope to secure second place in the 2012 Constructors' fight.

 

McLaren's battle for the 2012 Formula 1 Drivers' and Constructors' crowns is over but the team is determined to be runners-up.

Jenson Button said his team, whose former chief Ron Dennis once famously declared that second is just "first of the losers", is nonetheless determined to be runner-up.

Red Bull has now secured the Constructors' title for 2012. McLaren is 14 points behind Ferrari for second place, with just this  Brazilian GP showdown left to run.

GETTING 'ONE OVER' ON FERRARI

The difference between second and third is almost R89-million in Concorde Agreement prize money.

Button said: "The constructors' title does mean a lot to me because it is a lot of money. I think we can do it, but we will need the perfect weekend.

"It is also nice to get one over on Ferrari. We want to finish in front of them. We are a competitive team. We cannot beat Red Bull but we can beat Ferrari, which has to be our aim."
