Hamilton: The pace is there now
5 August 2011 – Lewis Hamilton is confident that McLaren have the pace to continually challenge championship leaders Red Bull until the end of the 2011 season.

“Off the back of two consecutive wins is a great way to go into the summer break; everyone is now having an important and well deserved rest and we'll be ready to come back fighting in Belgium.
“The pace in the car is there now, as demonstrated by the two victories, my fastest lap in Germany and our qualifying pace at both ‘Rings. We're in a strong position and we will be working hard to maximise that speed when we get back.”
