Alfa Romeo upgrades mean fighting with McLaren at Silverstone

Alfa Romeo are hopeful that the upgrades that they are bringing to the British Grand Prix will mean that they are able to compete with McLaren in the midfield battle. Team boss Fred Vasseur hopes that both drivers can finish in the points and that the team can build on the momentum that has been created over the past few races. 

"I think we did a good step forward over the last two or three races," Vasseur told "We have to improve a little bit the pace to be able to fight with the McLarens, which will be the next target.

"If you look at the last few races they were ahead, but we have good updates in the pipeline. For sure we need to do a step forward to fight with them in the races.

"We have a package for Silverstone and some other updates for Germany and Hungary, but we have to be realistic, everybody is pushing like hell, and they will also bring something."

Alfa Romeo are currently 6th in the Constructors Championship 20 points behind McLaren who are 4th. It will be impressive if the team can compete alongside McLaren but in Formula 1 anything can happen.
