MArtin Whitmarsh is Grateful to Lewis Hamilton

McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh has again been left thanking his lucky stars he has Lewis Hamilton on his side.

Hamilton may have finished a lap down on race winner Jenson Button, but that was harsh on the world champion as his efforts in a woeful McLaren went unnoticed.

No wonder Whitmarsh was effusive in his praise for the 24-year-old who has been left frustrated by his team's failure to give him a car with which to defend his title.

Whitmarsh is confident that at Monaco in 13 days' time, McLaren and Hamilton will prove the race in Barcelona was a blip on an upward curve following a disastrous start to the year.

It's a circuit that will suit us and we've great drivers - Lewis is mega there - so we just have to make sure we keep pushing and developing the car.
