I agree with the comments about playing down chances. The last thing anyone wants to do is say they are going to win, because if they don't they look silly. It's all about managing expectations, say you are not going to win, then win it's a big confidence boost. Same with all teams. Really they do have to drop the corporate "trying to understand the car" comments though as that just makes them sound stupid, you want to really understand the car, then ask your employees who designed it I'm sure they can tell you. That's what it sounds like to me, of course it's all about how it works on track, a better way of saying it would be "we are still trying to find the sweet spot in the setup, it's there and when we get it we'll know where we can go with development and setup changes".
