Pollock Counting on Luck to Get More Podiums

Thursday May 3rd, 2001

British American Racing chief Craig Pollock believes his team will currently only be able to achieve more podiums through good fortune rather than true competitiveness.

The team took their first ever podium place at last weekend's Spanish Grand Prix, but they were lucky to capitalise on the demise of Rubens Barrichello and Mika Hakkinen, and Pollock knows the competition is tough.

"Take a look in front and you still have McLaren and Ferrari," said Pollock. "Four cars. And if one or two don't fall off, it is a big job. They are so difficult to beat. We have to be there each and every time so that when the luck is there for us we are in that position."

Pollock believes that just half a second would see the team able to move into that position, and he says they are working hard to find it.

"We know the work we have to do," he said. "And we are going to carry on working to get that extra half second."
