Lando Norris: The heat has its challenges

Lando Norris, commenting on McLaren’s work in pre-season testing, favors streamlined wording, refraining from going into details, only assuring that the team continues to systematically collect information on the new car. He also praised his new team-mate, Oscar Piastri, highlighting that the Australian has already worked well with the team.

Lando Norris: “Like the whole team, my motivation is at the right level – the new season is starting and new opportunities are opening up for us to achieve better results. We understand that there is a lot to do, but the team is full of strength and energy and that makes me happy.

Today we worked fine, except there are some difficulties in the heat – Formula 1 cars don’t work well in such temperatures. But despite this, we were able to understand a lot, talking about the behavior of the MCL60, we found out what needed to be clarified – the main thing is that we already have a rough idea of ​​u200bu200bthe speed capabilities of our car.

It cannot be said that it is very different from last year, only some changes have been made in the design and during the tests we will try different settings, we try to get as much information as possible to decide on the direction of further modernization of the chassis.

However, I don’t know how we look compared to our rivals. Tomorrow we will continue working on the track, in our plans as a long series of circles, and test the car in qualifying mode, which we will probably do at the end of the day. In general, gathering information that can help both me and the team continues.

Every evening we analyze the data received, draw conclusions and try something new the next day. Today we will do exactly the same as we prepare for the final day of testing.

Oscar Piastri fits in very well with the team, he is calm behind the wheel of the car, he is in complete control of the situation and on top of that he is a great guy who is a pleasure to work with. He has a fresh perspective on a lot of things, which is very helpful for the team, so everyone is happy.”
