European Grand Prix is McLaren's big chance

Jun 23, 2011

PHUKET, Thailand -'s Formula 1 event guide covers the European Grand Prix in Valencia this week, as the current 2011 campaign finally became interesting after two exciting races in Monaco and Montreal.

Jenson Button's dramatic victory at the Canadian Grand Prix last week pumped new life into his McLaren Mercedes team. He and teammate Lewis Hamilton now have an excellent chance to make up ground on Red Bull Racing and reigning champ Sebastian Vettel, if both McLaren drivers can finish in the top three on the podium. Chief Information Officer Olivier Dombey said: "The last two races have added some spice to the kettle this year. McLaren really needs a strong team effort in Valencia, and Ferrari is also looking for a breakthrough result to salvage its season.

“Ferrari particularly needs as strong race from former F1 champion Fernando Alonso on what should be considered the Spaniard's home track," Dombey said.

"The European Grand Prix offers the perfect excuse for fans to explore Valencia. It is always one of the most popular destinations on the Formula 1 calendar, ideally timed for the start of the Spanish summer," he added.
