McLaren?s Racing Director Eric Boullier appears confident that scheduled upgrades will improve the teams performance during 2014.

There had been murmurings that McLaren might be set to try some radical changes to the current car in a desperate bid to close the gap to their rivals.

However a positive performance during the British Grand Prix from both Jenson Button and Kevin Magnussen has given the team hope that they are on the right track.

?The line or path we have decided to follow is going to be pushed a little bit further,? Boullier told Sky Sports.

With McLaren CEO Ron Dennis notably cracking the whip in the background the team will push hard to bring forward scheduled upgrades.

?The correlation and upgrade package we brought, originally for Silverstone but it went to Austria, is doing well so now we are doing the same and pushing to bring every upgrade one race earlier. So in Germany we?ll bring more upgrades than originally scheduled.?

?There won?t be any radical change now. Also, we have really found the policy or strategy so we?re going to push as hard and as long as possible the development of this car, the 29A, as long as we can carry over the concept of next year?s car,?

McLaren are currently sixth in the Formula One constructors championship, 1 point behind Force India, 13 points behind Williams and 16 points behind Ferrari.

Whilst in the drivers championship Kevin Magnussen is ninth, 20 points behind Button in eighth who trails championship leader Nico Rosberg by 110 points.
