Dennis finding defeat tough to take

RON DENNIS has revealed his pain after watching another desperate race weekend for McLaren at the Monaco Grand Prix.

His team are suffering a troublesome year and have been set back by difficulties with the electronics introduced at Barcelona three races ago.

"It is painful," said Dennis. "It is there in front of the world and we don't hide from it.

"We have got to take the pain and the things we are good at we will continue, and the things we are bad at we will sort out.

"I don't think disappointment is the right expression - we like to think of ourselves as professionals.

"We are a team with many race victories and world championships, drivers have made mistakes over the years, teams have made mistakes over the years and that is never going to change."
