Alan Whitmarsh: Button-Hamilton fight will happen.

Posted: 09/03/2010 in Formula 1

Speaking to the “Daily Mail” Alan Whitmarsh spoke about the relationship Lewis and Jenson would have being together in McLaren for possibly the toughest season ever viewed, and that it’s only a matter of time until both of them fall out trying to win.

 “At some point, one of them is going to feel uncomfortable because he is getting beaten by the other,” he said.

“I can’t remember the start of a F1 season where there’s been so much interest, excitement and anticipation,” Whitmarsh added. “The closeness of the winter tests, our double-champion line-up, the return of a F1 legend and the presence of four world champions on the grid mean that 2010 is already shaping up to be a classic season.

“From our side, we’ve been engaged in one of the most painstakingly diligent pre-season programmes that we’ve ever undertaken. We’ve amassed an enormous amount of data and we’ve learnt a considerable amount about MP4-25 in just four brief tests. We’ve been encouraged by our progress, we’ve been delighted with the input of both Jenson and Lewis and, finally, we feel ready.

“Make no mistake: we’re a team of racers. We’ve been waiting impatiently for the first race to arrive for many months. We feel we’ve risen to the challenge and we can’t wait to get started – Bahrain is a demanding track for both the team and the drivers and we’re looking forward enormously to racing in the home of one of our primary shareholders. It promises to be a fantastic grand prix.”
