“We don’t have a car capable of winning from the front yet, but as long as we can get it tamed through Maggots, Becketts and around the faster corners, we have a decent chance of a competitive showing this weekend.

“Maybe if the Red Bull stumbles, who knows, but I’m hopeful of a better weekend. I’d cry [if Mercedes manages to win].

“I’ve got my fingers crossed that we’ll have a creditable showing with a car that’s definitely on the mend,” Allison concluded.
