McLaren must be 'creative' to win 2010 title
McLaren needs to get creative if it is to claw back its lead in the 2010 world championships, according to boss Martin Whitmarsh.

With clearly the faster car, Red Bull has taken over at the top of the points tables, but McLaren's Lewis Hamilton is only 4 points shy of leader Mark Webber.

In recent weeks, Woking based McLaren has been working on emulating Red Bull's blown floor concept, but Whitmarsh said the team's engineers also need to be more creative during the ongoing development of the MP4-25.

"We have not suspended the diffuser project, but we hope to invent something new," he is quoted by Autosprint magazine.

Creativity is at the heart of the current front wing flexibility controversy, with Red Bull expecting to pass even the more stringent scrutineering tests at Spa-Francorchamps next weekend.

Whitmarsh said McLaren has an understanding about the regulations that may not be shared by some of its competitors. "The FIA needs to make this area absolutely clear," he said.
