The detail of the Sainz podium that does not convince McLaren

Andreas Seidl, happy with the Madrid player in the 'drawer', does not want distractions now: "We must add podiums for our own performance."


McLaren celebrated Carlos Sainz's first podium in Formula 1, which is also the first for Woking since Australia 2014, even before the Madrid rider was a pilot of this grid. The prize is almost more important for the team, putting the icing on their first season outside the well, than for Carlos himself. However, there is no conformism in the orange garage, but quite the opposite. "Nor do we have to mislead, the goal is to add the podiums in the future thanks to our performance and that is what I focus on," says Andreas Seidl, head of McLaren F1.

The German engineer celebrated his trophy with his own and congratulated Sainz: "It is a success for the whole team." But he insists that what McLaren wants is to climb into the 'drawer' exclusively on his own merits, without waiting for accidents from Ferrari, Red Bull and Mercedes: "This award, the year we have done together with the Brazilian podium gives us motivation to continue working and add more podiums in the future, but based on our benefits ".

On the race, Seidl describes: "What a race ... it was not easy to read it. It was an incredible 'stint' of Carlos with the soft tire, I don't know how many laps he made or how he defended himself after the other cars with better tires in the end, it was a great pilot on his part. " The high in pace after cold Sundays like Austin's can be explained by having committed part of the qualifying performance, which they would do: "We have to analyze it because we were stronger in the race compared to Friday and Saturday, but so many things happened that we should review the details. We were also lucky. "

"The two drivers have been fundamental in the step we have taken this year. And Carlos with his experience has been very important to guide the development of the car. And fulfilling Saturday and Sunday. Also Lando, who has had bad luck with some unfortunate breakdowns. Two drivers that are tightened is the best thing you can have as a team, "Seidl finished before the media in Interlagos after the race.
