Australian Grand Prix upgrades for McLaren F1

Published

on

Martin Whitmarsh Principal of McLaren team is confident regarding his team’s probability to the lead of the Melbourne race and bare the MP4-25 would run a number of some upgrades at the race.

Bahrain GP McLaren finished on the podium in took advantage of Sebastian Vettel’s engine problem. The car was off the speed of Ferrari and Red Bull in qualifying and was giving away time in the extensively middle sector of the lap. However, Whitmarsh thinks his team’s performance last weekend was misleading and said he is heading to Melbourne full of confidence.

Approaching just a fortnight after the opening race in Bahrain, there’s been only negligible time to add developments to the MP4-25, he added. But we’ve got a number of smaller mechanisms that we wait for to add to the car ahead of the race. We’ve had the probability to reproduce upon it, and I think that our start to the season has been mostly confident Our race pace in Bahrain looked highly regarded – we had the fastest car for much of the second half of the race – and I think we now have a clearer idea of how to set the car up over a GP weekend. Of course, we’re under no false impression that the opposition will be tough – and we expecting a incredible battle in Melbourne this weekend.

Button was finished seventh in Bahrain GP and struggle with the car through the new taut and twisty part additional for this year’s race. He is sure that the McLaren will be improved suitable to Melbourne where he expects to be more aggressive. I think we head to the Albert Park circuit mood more surely of our overall pace, he added. It’s quite a contrast to Bahrain: no tight, low-speed sections and plenty of faster corners. We think the track arrangement should suit our package. We learnt some very useful lessons about MP4-25 in the opening race, and the whole team is keen to put them into practice this weekend.
