In addition to a small incident, when Lando Norris flew off the road due to cool conditions and cold tires, the final test day was productive for McLaren …

Lando Norris (7th): “In my opinion, today I drove more circles than ever on the tests. In addition, this is the most peaceful day this week: we have worked stably and productively. The team again conducted a race simulation, and I learned a lot in two days. The progress is obvious, but there is still a lot of work ahead.

In general, the week has passed positively. The guys did a great job in the offseason, the tests are relatively quiet. Now we know in which direction to move in working with the machine, we understand its strengths and weaknesses, and we will try to correct the shortcomings next week. ”

Gilles de Ferrand, sports director: “In general, the first tests were successful and productive, and fortunately, this means that we have almost nothing to talk about! We drove a good distance, completed the test program and collected a lot of useful information about the MCL34, Pirelli tires and our new racers. The work done this week is another positive step in our preparation for the start of the season, and we hope to build on this success in the second week of tests. ”
