NEW DELHI (AFP) - Sporting director Sam Michael is adamant that McLaren will not throw in the towel in this season's Formula One title battle, saying the team is targeting wins in the final four races of the season.

Red Bull top the drivers' and constructors' championships after three successive victories for two-time defending champion Sebastian Vettel.

But Australian Michael, speaking ahead of this weekend's Indian Grand Prix in New Delhi, said McLaren drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button would fight until the bitter end despite a disappointing few weeks for the team.

"We're going to push to the end. Our target at McLaren is to win every race, and we'll do our best to achieve that," said Michael during a telephone interview.
