McLarens hopes of improved performance in the German Grand prix were dashed with their cars performing poorly during qualification.

Team drivers Jenson Button said it was “worrying”, while Lewis Hamilton said it was clear McLaren were now the third team.

Hamilton said: “I’ll do the best job from where I am, hopefully get a good start and just chase the guys down.”

Talking about the Car Button said, “The car was very pointy on Friday, but we know why and we changed the car to help it and this morning it was good in the dry. We just don’t have the pace of the Red Bulls, which is worrying.”

Hamilton was also downbeat about the car’s performance saying: “I was already down a 10th through Turn One, and from then on it’s very hard to catch it back. It’s clear now we’re the third team, which I’ve been saying for a while. Ferrari did a great job and I think we just need to keep pushing.

“There’s some time there, but I don’t think I would ever be anywhere near the Ferrari or Red Bulls.”
