Hamilton sees McLaren improvement
Lewis Hamilton says he can see "light at the end of the tunnel" after a hugely frustrating start to the season.
The reigning world champion has won just nine points this campaign, with his McLaren car struggling to keep pace with the likes of Brawn and Red Bull.
But Hamilton, who finished 16th at the British Grand Prix, still harbours some optimism for the rest of the season.
Lewis Hamilton said that he is hoping that they will have some huge improvements for the next race and for their end-of-season push.
Hamilton's best result of the season, after he was stripped of third place at the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, has been his fourth place in Bahrain back in April.
But since then his McLaren has increasingly struggled during a race weekend, with the 24-year-old suffering the worst qualifying result of his career - 19th - at Silverstone. .
"We need a competitive car before the end of the season so we can learn as much as we possibly can for next season," he added.
