Formula One News » F1 2013 – McLaren aim to solve “correlation issue” Posted on 09/05/2013
McLaren who have managed to just score 23 points so far during the 2013 F1 season are aiming to fix the “correlation issues” which have hindered the team all season. McLaren came into the season off the back of a strong 2012 F1 season only to find their selves playing catch up.
Speaking to Autosport Jonathan Neale said “We are essentially trying to sort out a correlation issue, it’s really important that we sort out the issues with the car and the correlation.
“All of the time you’ve got that lingering doubt of ‘hang on a second, what went went wrong, where did it go wrong and how do we fix it?’, you’ve got the opportunity for it to arise again.”
“There’s good reason why both Jenson and I would want to be relatively low key, none of us wants to be a hostage to fortune and setting ourselves up for a blow on the chin from [the media] isn’t very funny.
“The other thing is we’re not working in isolation here, and while of course it’s very natural that people want us to predict that we’re going to be on pole position, it’s a tough sport and the competitors don’t stand still. Quite what will be delivered depends on what everybody else will be doing.
“It’s impossible to predict and unwise to try to do so.”
