Andrea Stella of McLaren F1 Team has branded the MCL-36 as “well behaved” following a third and sixth place finish for Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo in Friday’s qualifying session at Imola.

“We’ve had a positive start to our first Sprint weekend of the season. The car behaved well, across the wet and dry conditions we experienced today, while the drivers and the team operated very well to adapt through the frequently changing conditions,” McLaren’s executive racing director claimed.

“Unfortunately, there are no points on offer today, and we’ve still got a lot of work to do. We’ll make sure our feet stay firmly on the ground, and we’ll prepare as best we can for the Sprint tomorrow and Sunday’s Grand Prix.”

After a difficult start to the season, McLaren saw big improvements in Australia and the first qualifying session in Italy; and will be hoping to carry the momentum for the rest of the weekend.
