McLaren to challenge Red Bull in China

Published

on

McLaren is trying to roll out upgrades expected to be worth more than three-tenth of a second per lap at the Chinese Grand Prix this coming weekend – Currently the team is struggling to chase the pace of front runners. As per the team sources McLaren has got more than that and it comes from a series of aerodynamic and suspension upgrades.

McLaren is almost humiliated by the Mercedes’s strong performance in the early stages after the Hamilton move. Lewis Hamilton ultimately triumphed against the odds and finished in the podium at Malaysia.

Sources say that Hamilton is thrilled to the fact that he proved his move was strategically good for his career. Though it is too early to predict he is the clear winner against his ex-team.

Last year in the second half of the season Redbull proved everything is possible in Formula 1 by reducing a second per lap on changing some secondary parts on the top of the floor. The team has revealed that for China they have a bigger upgrade, with improvements focused on the MP4-28’s aero surfaces and suspension.

We personally believe that Mclaren has the potential to improve and challenge the leaders but they still have to work on the team process and management. They have to invest more time on Pit team improvement process because the pit errors continuously affect the team finishes.
