McLaren set for 'quantum leap'

McLaren Mercedes will make a 'quantum leap' up the F1 grid this year, according to Ron Dennis.

The Mercedes-powered team's principal is quoted on the website as enthusing about upcoming improvements to the MP4-21 car, which has so far failed to live up to the promise of its ten-race winning 2005 predecessor.

And test driver Pedro de la Rosa warned: “If what I am experiencing on the test track is confirmed (in races), we are to make a big step.”

Colombian racer Juan Pablo Montoya is also bullish.
“We keep bringing our aerodynamic packages forward and the (V8) engine keeps improving,” he commented.

McLaren are second in the standings but already trail the dominant Renault team by 19 points.
