Andreas Seidl: We intend to attack in full forceSeptember 25, 2019
At the Russian stage of the championship, the McLaren team intends to fight for points in order to maintain the 4th position in the Constructors’ Championship.
Carlos Sainz: “All three races that took place after the summer break did not work out as we wanted, but I’m sure that we can reverse this trend. The car showed itself well, the whole team works assembled. We must continue to move forward, and it is good that the next Grand Prix is already very soon.
The track in Sochi is complex and interesting, there are many slow 90-degree turns, and this is similar to the Singapore one, but there are also unique turns, such as a long left, which stretches from the 3rd to the 5th turns. Once again, I am ready to give everything 100%. “
Lando Norris: “The race in Singapore last weekend was pretty good for me, and now I want to build on this success at the next Grand Prix. We know how tight the struggle is in the middle of the peloton, and in order to stay ahead of the rivals, it is extremely important to make full use of any, even the most unexpected, opportunities.
“I am glad to go back to Sochi, where last year I worked on the first Friday training and competed in Formula 2 races, so I can immediately start working on speed from the very first session.”
Andreas Seidl, team leader: “After an exciting race in Singapore, we go to Sochi and try to use all the positive experience of the previous weekend at the Russian Grand Prix. In Singapore, we showed a good pace both in qualification and in the race, and this proves that the technical innovations that we prepared during the season work as they should.
Now we must maintain this pace in all the remaining races – it depends only on us. We intend to attack in full force in order to maintain our position ahead of the rest of the middle group teams, however, our goals for the future are related to preparations for 2020. It is important to find a balanced approach to these two tasks, while trying to see the picture in its entirety.
As we leave for Russia immediately from Singapore, this is fraught with significant organizational difficulties, but the whole team is determined to complete the task and intends to perform as best as possible next weekend. ”
