McLaren racing director Eric Boullier is adamant that the team has solved its key issues and will be able to build a competitive car for 2015.

“I do have the confidence that we will have a good car from next year,” he said today. “Just because obviously we’ve addressed all the issues internally, and I believe we made all the right decisions. We have seen already in Austria the first benefits of the changes which we have done in the organization, and I think now we are heading in the right way.”

McLaren has chimed in on the fuel flow controversy.

After Daniel Ricciardo was disqualified in Melbourne, Red Bull argued that it went its own way with the new fuel consumption rules because FIA’s mandatory sensors were not accurate enough.

However, engine supplier Renault’s rivals Mercedes and Ferrari backed the FIA in the wake of the ruling, while the sensor supplier Gill insisted it has the full support of Formula 1′s governing body.
