McLaren are preparing for the Dutch Grand Prix, hoping to make up for a poor performance at Spa, where the team’s drivers failed to earn points.
Lando Norris: “I really like to race in Zandvoort, and even when I competed in the junior categories, I managed to show very good results there.
Elevations and turns create a feeling of a rollercoaster – in general, I’m looking forward to how we get to work on this track and try to give our best. In addition, the atmosphere is always incredible at this track, and I like to think that most of the fans in orange support McLaren.
Last weekend it became clear that we have to do a lot of work to continue to fight with Alpine. I have complete confidence in the team and I know that we will do our best and continue to attack. The next two races are key, so you have to stay focused and work hard.”
Daniel Riccardo: “I am happy to prepare for the race in Zandvoort, on this wonderful track, because it is a great pleasure to race there. The race is accompanied by an almost festival atmosphere, and this creates a great mood from the very beginning of the weekend.
It’s an old school track with interesting sections like the Tarzan corner and you can overtake on it. In general, I am glad that we are returning to Zandvoort – let’s see what kind of sensations await us on the machines of the new generation compared to last year.
I’ve spent the previous two days in Amsterdam trying to readjust, feast on local delicacies and think about what I can do to perform better this weekend.
In Spa, things did not turn out the way we wanted, but we managed to win back before, and now we will try to do the same. After the Belgian weekend, we made some conclusions, and now we will need it. Let’s hope we can come out with more confidence and fight Alpine.”
Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: “Zandvoort is an incredibly fast track with many memorable historical moments. Let’s see how the new cars will show themselves there, and what will happen with overtaking, because on this track the riders can fight for wheel-to-wheel positions. The merits of the route include both elevation changes and high-speed sections, which are very interesting to overcome.
In recent days, we have been analyzing the results of the previous weekend, trying to learn as much as possible lessons. The results at Spa did not meet our expectations, but at Zandvoort we will have the opportunity to use the findings to improve the efficiency of the machine.”
