Cape Town - McLaren racing director Eric Boullier has said that he
believes McLaren will win "at least one race" next season after
ditching Honda for Renault power.
A very difficult relationship with Honda will be over at the
end of the season and a change to Renault is bringing new hope for the Woking
team who have not won since 2012.
"For 2018, our goal is to fight for third place in the
constructors' championship," Boullier told Spanish newspaper Marca.
"But I hope we can do more than this and get a win
after so many years.
"I will not start to create false expectations or put
hope in our fans that we cannot fulfil, but I believe that we will at least win
a race [next year].”
McLaren will be hoping that it will be Fernando Alonso who
can potentially deliver that success, with the two parties still locked in
discussions about the Spaniard's future.
