"We don't have the same level of downforce this year that we had last year", said Brown.

Less than two weeks later, McLaren Racing announced alongside a new management structure that Bouiller had, in fact, left the team. I had more experience with Andrea than Zak, who only knows Andrea for one year, so he wanted my opinion and how I see Gil and things like that.

"It was a very hard time for everyone at McLaren with a lot of pressure on our shoulders", team executive Brown told L'Equipe.

McLAREN have replaced sporting director Eric Boullier with former Cart champion and Indy 500 victor Gil de Ferran.

As for whether Boullier's existing role will be replaced, Brown said that he is unsure.

"I was not consulted, I was informed", Alonso said at Silverstone. I have no doubts today was my best qualifying session of the all year and the best weekend of the season too, because the entire Saturday went really well.

The prime minister will have a crunch meeting with members of her Tory party to discuss her plan in Parliament on Monday evening. Environment Secretary Michael Gove said Sunday that it did not contain everything he wanted but "I'm a realist".

"The reason the auto is not performing on the track is because we're not performing well as a team", Brown told Sky Sports television.

Asked what the target was for the rest of this campaign, Brown said: 'We're in a pretty big fight for fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh, all the teams are close there. But definitely, I have more experience than probably all the engineers at the track.

"I think we have to be very realistic and honest with ourselves, with our fans, with you, to say that this is going to be a journey".

However, Brown said it is still possible that Fernando Alonso will push to complete his "triple crown" next year at the Indy 500. 'A racer's instinct is important so it would be a mistake to not tap into his knowledge of how different teams operate and I've done that. He likes the McLaren environment and he obviously believes in us because he had the chance to leave this year but chose to stay and I believe he wants to be here long term.
