The McLaren team is determined to recoup in Brazil for a poor performance at the stage in Mexico.
Lando Norris: “Last year, due to the pandemic, there was no stage in Brazil, and I am glad that we will be racing there again. Interlagos is a legendary track with a rich history. This circuit is distinguished by a unique atmosphere that. created by passionate fans, so it’s fun to play there.
Hopefully, before this weekend, we learn the lessons we learned in Mexico and can work better. There are four races left until the end of the season, so every session is important now.
Our experience of participating in the qualifying sprint shows that there are many opportunities to make progress during the weekend. We have to keep working hard and getting started with Friday’s practice session. ”
Daniel Riccardo: “We are returning to Brazil for another weekend that includes a sprint. So far, on these weekends this year, we are lucky, so now we have a positive attitude.
But at the previous stage, the result upset us, so now we need to look only forward. Fortunately, since the races follow in a row at weekly intervals, we almost immediately have the opportunity to recoup.
In Mexico City, I did not earn points, but the results of the weekend could have been completely different if I had slowed down a few centimeters earlier – this suggests that our car allows us to fight for high positions and earn points.
Of course, even after such a weekend, we have reasons for optimism. Now my task is to earn some points in a few days, so we will try to fulfill it. The team is determined to succeed and we will continue to fight until the very last lap of the season. ”
Andreas Seidl, team leader: “This weekend in Brazil we have a chance to recoup after such a result in Mexico. It’s great that we are returning to the circuit in São Paulo, to one of the historic circuits in the Formula 1 calendar. The team has many good memories of the previous visit to Brazil, because then we secured a podium for ourselves – for the first time since 2014.
However, over the course of this intense series of three races in a row, it is important to stay focused and make the most of our opportunities to earn points.
The Brazilian track is in its own way difficult, because Sao Paulo, like Mexico City, is located much higher than sea level, and such features of Interlagos as the constant alternation of ascents and descents and unpredictable weather will make the development of events even more interesting.
We are preparing for the upcoming weekend, where the qualifying sprint will take place for the third and final time this year. Fans appreciated the new format, and additional opportunities are opening up for the teams from the very beginning of the weekend.
Our task is to try to ensure that both cars consistently show high speeds from the very first session, so that in the end the team has achieved the maximum possible result. “
