It has been a near perfect start to the FIA Formula One World Championship for Mclaren F1 Team, with both cars finishing well inside the points at both Bahrain and Imola. Not only this but they have already had their first podium of the season with Lando Norris last time out, Daniel Ricciardo too is making great progress with the car.
Team principal Andreas Seidl is very happy with the constructors points gained so early into the season and is hoping for more to be added to the rapidly growing tally this weekend at Algarve, Portugal and next weekend at Barcelona, Spain.
“This weekend sees us start the first double-header of the season as we prepare to go racing in Portugal then Spain. Portimão was a welcome addition to the calendar last year and it’s great to be returning to race there again. Back-to-back events provide a unique set of challenges for the team that we’re well prepared for. Reliability, operational effectiveness and the management of spare parts are crucial to the success of these weekends.”
“Imola again provided confirmation of the step forward we’ve made as a team, which is encouraging to see. Both drivers are doing a good job on-track and have scored some important points for the Constructors’ Championship over the first two races. It’s important that we keep the positive momentum and energy up. There’s still a lot of work to do as we look to keep pushing and deliver upgrades that are in the pipeline.”
“We also need to continue to maximise any opportunities that present themselves and make the right decisions to stay in the mix. Every single member of the team is dedicated to giving our competition a hard time out on track. We remain focused and are ready to go again this weekend.”
