He told Sky Sports: “Everyone in our factory doesn’t dare say it, but we are cautiously optimistic of having a more competitive weekend than some of those we’ve had of late.

“We don’t have a car capable of winning from the front yet, but as long as we can get it tamed through Maggots, Becketts and around the faster corners, we have a decent chance of a competitive showing this weekend. 

“Maybe if the Red Bull stumbles, who knows, but I’m hopeful of a better weekend.

“I’d cry [if Mercedes find a win]. I’ve got my fingers crossed that we’ll have a creditable showing with a car that’s definitely on the mend.”
