McLaren: Boullier's Thesaurus Mainly due to the Mercedes- friendly nature of the circuit, McLaren enjoyed a strong sunday, getting the better of Red Bull and Ferrari. Team boss eric Boullier offered his usual colourful summation: "After a more than somewhat irksome day yesterday, it was a pleasure and a relief to enjoy a trouble-free race today. "Jenson drove faultlessly all afternoon, defending well against Fernando in the early stages and thereafter serenely holding fourth place until flag-fall. "Kevin made a stunning start, passing no fewer than five cars before the end of the first lap, and thereby emerging at the end of it in sixth place. Like Jenson, he then drove hard and well to the finish, putting in some impressively rapid laps towards to the end of his first stint in order successfully to leapfrog Fernando when they both pitted for fresh tyres, and fuel- saving diligently as the race neared its end. "And while I'm on the subject of pit-stops, I want to pay tribute to our pit-crew, who once again wrought impeccable pit-stops; well done, guys. "Admittedly, McLaren didn't get where it is today by finishing Grands Prix fourth and fifth, we know that, but it's clear that the direction of our improvement is both positive and linear. Moreover, the 22 World Championship points we scored this afternoon have lifted us well clear of Force India in the Constructors' World Championship, and we fully intend to consolidate that advantage over the final three Grands Prix of the season. "Finally, on that subject, I want to take this opportunity to congratulate our friends at Mercedes-Benz for having sewn up the constructors' world championship this afternoon: an effort doughty and a result lustrous." Doughty and lustrous huh? eric's been reading his Roget's Thesaurus again ... 30 GPWEEK.com // 30 GPWEEK.com // F1 >>> RUSSIA PARTNERS:
