The Woking based F1 squad’s boss Eric Boullier admits that, it will take some time for the McLaren-Renault relationship to gel, also he insists that, the team can’t expect to be instantly high performance like existing customer Red Bull in 2018.

Following three unacceptable seasons with Honda engine, McLaren are moving to Renault engines from next season. McLaren has signed a three-year contract with the French manufacturer and will run the same engines as both Renault factory team and Red Bull Racing.

“If you have a 10-year relationship with a partner obviously you have a different connection which we don’t have yet as we are building the relationship,” Boullier told Crash.net.

“It is going to take some time but we are very motivated to do the best.

“If you are McLaren you are designed for winning so we will do everything we can to be winning. If you have the full package which means an okay engine, the best car and the best crew and driver you should be winning. So for us the pressure is the same.

“I like it because I am fan of no bullshit so if you have a team next door with the same engine it means if you don’t beat them something is wrong with the rest of the car. That is perfect.”
