Sometimes you do not ride them at once because it depends on your calendar for the season itself.

As a team, we are independent and will continue to be so, the relationship extends to 2020, by 2021 everything is open for now", clarifies on the validity of this linkage started at 2018.

The RS19 and MCL34 would complement each other perfectly: the French stand out in the slow corners, where McLaren suffers, while the orange car stands out in medium and fast turns. "We know that it is one of our weak points, the low speed corners, we try to correct it with the improvements we bring to the circuits and it is clearly one of our priorities, in addition to improving the performance in all areas, in general. that the main battle will be in the middle zone between us and Renault, yes, but will depend on the improvements we are able to bring, of our learning about the car and our execution of the races ".
