"The second half of the year is going to be again full on," said Horner in a press conference after the German Grand Prix.

"Fernando's finished all the races in the points, he's won three races now, he's got a 34 point lead. But that isn't insurmountable with 25 points for a win. It's important that we get both of our guys regularly beating him."

"We'll be looking to put as much pressure as we can on in the second half of the year, which starts next weekend (Hungarian Grand Prix). He's driving very well, the car is obviously come on in leaps and bounds, but there's an awful lot of racing to be done between now and the chequered flag in Brazil," added Horner.
