Friday press conference - Brazilian GP - Pt.1

Martin, a great race last weekend for Lewis Hamilton. A great win for Jenson Button at the start of the season. You had the fastest car at the start and the end, but is it a source of frustration that you're not involved in the title battle.

Martin Whitmarsh:
Of course. I think we've had six great wins this year and we haven't done a good enough job for the rest of the season one way and another and that's a little bit frustrating, but at the moment we're in a position where with one race to go we're going to focus. These guys have got some pressures on their shoulders and we're going to try and win the race. In one sense it makes it simple for us this weekend.

How much does that affect your preparations for next year, knowing what you've had from this?

Martin Whitmarsh:
I think there's no secrets: to be consistently winning you've got to have a quick car, you've got to have reliability. We've often had a quickish car this season, we've had a number of errors, a number of issues, which are disappointing, but we know we've got to work on that and we'll aim to come out next year with a quick car and hopefully be reliable and be there at the last race.
