The success of McLaren is also part of Alonso and Vandoorne

The director of the English team says that both "deserve a lot of credit" because "they pointed out the weaknesses and where to develop the car".


What changes life in a matter of a year. Last season, McLaren signed a very bad campaign by adding 62 points with those who could only be sixth in the Constructors' World Championship. This year, everything is different since the Woking team is fourth in the World with 52 points in nine races.

For Andreas Seidl, part of this success is also from last year's riders, Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne. "Nobody expected the team to take this step, after finishing last season as the ninth fastest car. This simply shows that many of the changes made last year are paying off," comments the McLaren director in a statement picked up in the middle 'GP Today'.

"The team did a good job of bringing this car to the track Also the riders from last year, Fernando and Stoffel, deserve a lot of credit, they pointed out the weaknesses and where to develop the car. And now the objective is to continue with the development ", adds Seidl.

The last success of McLaren this season has been in the Grand Prix of Austria where Norris finished sixth and Sainz was eighth, confirming as well as the fourth team on the grid. "It was great to finish P6 and P8," says Seidl. "It was a great effort from Carlos to recover after starting from the end, it could have been even better, but unfortunately, the front wing was damaged a few laps before the end, then it was about surviving and maintaining the position. We had a lot of understeer in terms of lap time, we lost about a second, we were lucky that Raikkonen also lost time back, "explains the German.

" I am very happy for the team, because it is Good to confirm that Paul Ricard was not just an isolated case Newly we were the fourth fastest team in the middle group ", concludes Seidl.
