McLaren duo Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne finished with points in Bahrain Grand Prix race. Following the race, the Spaniard says McLaren need to raise their game after a difficult Bahrain GP weekend.

Alonso now stands fourth in the championship after a fifth and seventh place in the first two races.

Alonso: “Both cars again in the points. Good job from the team with the pit stop and the strategy and reliability. Points are given on Sunday so I think we scored good points given how the weekend started and what the performance was like this weekend.

“Definitely we need to improve and make a step forward. We need to raise our game because it’s not enough at the moment. So far on Sundays we are delivering the result but we need to be a step ahead.”

Stoffel Vandoorne: “Great fighting out there today. After my start I was last at Turn One. I thought that meant it would be a tough day at the office but it was a very enjoyable one.

“We had a good strategy, a lot of overtaking done on track which was very satisfying. We knew our race pace would be better than qualifying and we showed that again today with both cars in the points. We have a bit of work to do.

“I’m sure the results will be visible very soon. There are a lot of plans ahead. We are very confident on Sundays we can go out there and race.”
