London, July 27 (ANI): McLaren’s boss Martin Whitmarsh has said that he would rather Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button lost the World Championship than fix a race.The Sun quoted Whitmarsh, 53, as saying: “We sacrificed a World Championship in 2007. We had every reason to be different. There is always a bit of you which says we shouldn’t have done that but overall I’m proud we did.”He added: “Had we leant to give the advantage to one of our drivers then it would have made enough of a difference to have acquired the extra point to have won the championship. I remember talking to the drivers and their management. I said a great driver would want to look themselves in the mirror and say, ‘I have won this championship on merit, not by the team leaning one way and giving me an advantage’. We do desperately want to win, but it’s about how you win.” (ANI)
