Jenson Button is already looking forward to next weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix after his podium finish in Hockenheim.
Button finished in third place on Sunday but was bumped up to second following Sebastian Vettel's penalty due to an illegal overtake.
I feel really encouraged that we can have another great race next weekend.Jenson Button
The result was only the third time Button has finished on the podium this season and he believes his McLaren now has what it takes to win races.
"We're right up there with Ferrari and Red Bull in terms of speed," said the Briton.
"If we can sort out qualifying we have a really good chance of winning races."
Button won in Hungary last year and is 12.00 to repeat his victory this time round. Sunday's winner and championship leader Fernando Alonso is 15.00, while Vettel can be backed at 6.00.
"I'm already looking forward to Hungary," said Button, whose first F1 win came at the Hungaroring.
"It's a special place for me, and I feel really encouraged that we can have another great race next weekend."
There was a downside to the weekend for McLaren, with Lewis Hamilton forced to retire from the race with damage to his gearbox.
