F1: McLaren will rise again

It hasn't been an easy season for McLaren.

With just six races left, starting with this weekend's Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix, the British team are almost certain to finish outside the top three in the constructors' championship for the second year in a row, and for just the third time since 1998.

But rookie driver Kevin Magnussen believes a revival is on the cards.

Speaking to the media before an event at the Tag Heuer store at Wisma Atria yesterday, the 21-year-old said: "Our goal now is to finish off the season on a high and make a strong car for 2015.

"I think we're doing okay. We can always look back and say we could have done better, but we've got to look forward and be positive about the future.

"There are a lot of great things in place at McLaren that are happening for the future. And I'm positive we can get back on top fairly soon."

Magnussen, who is in his first season as a Formula 1 driver, started the year with a bang, finishing second in his debut race at the Australian Grand Prix in March.

But the Dane's campaign has fizzled out as he has not managed to finish higher than seventh in the 12 races since Melbourne.
