"Motorsport has been revolutionised in recent years," he explained in his pre-race press conference last week. "Modern motorsport has changed, there is no longer a rush to fit things in. It used to be very focused on specialising in one particular field, but now you can be a professional and give yourself many possibilities all over the world."


With victory in Le Mans, the former Renault driver is now just an Indy500 victory away from securing the famed Triple Crown, a feat which he is targeting. "They are very difficult events to compare," he admitted. "They are all very special and difficult to win, although perhaps the Monaco Grand Prix is the easiest because if you qualify well you are 99 percent assured of victory. On the otherside the challenge is bigger because it's a once a year event, everything is bigger and the environment is totally different."


"Fernando is very happy in the world of McLaren, (but he) still has to make a decision," Brown said after the race in France. "We have a very good relationship with him. He has been with us for quite a long time and it ultimately depends on what and where we will compete and how our F1 car evolves. I am optimistic. Fernando will remain in the family, in the Formula 1 car."
