McLaren-Honda driver Stoffel Vandoorne hopes that the positive results in Baku continue to build as the F1 circus rolls in to Austria.

“I’m looking forward to Austria – it’s a great little circuit that usually produces good overtaking, close racing and unexpected results.” said Vandoorne.

“It should also suit our package a little better than Canada and Baku, where the long straights really don’t play to our strengths. 

Last time out at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, team-mate Fernando Alonso grabbed some much needed points for the fallen team; Vandoorne is keen to build upon this boost in morale.

“Scoring points in the last race was very good for the whole team’s motivation and morale, and I’m hopeful that we’ll be able to make further progress in Austria.

“We’ve been bringing upgrades to every race, so a problem-free weekend, at a circuit that doesn’t disadvantage us, would really allow us to gain some momentum. 

“Of course, we’re still some way off where we want to be, but a respectable result in Austria would really give the team an added boost.”
