McLaren's world championship driver line-up of Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button are looking forward to getting back to racing in Belgium next weekend, as Formula One's traditional summer break comes to an end. Having failed to win a race since the Canadian Grand Prix in June the team is hoping for a return to form on the long straights of Spa-Francorchamps.

Reigning champion Button is hoping the front wing clarifications being introduced by the FIA in Belgium will help the team close the gap to Red Bull and Ferrari. "While we're optimistic that the bodywork rules clarification will close the gap among the top teams, and that both Spa and Monza should suit our package better than the Hungaroring, it's still important that we regain the momentum we'd reached earlier this season," said Button.
