The news of an improved and upgraded MCL60 will be welcomed by McLaren fans and the drivers too but Lando Norris admitted that this should have been the car the team started the year with.
“What we have now is what we should have started the year with,” he said. “A lot of other teams also have upgrades so our job is to try and bring slightly bigger things and try to play a little bit of catch-up.
“I think what we have this weekend is just the baseline we should have started the year with. It's about understanding that what we have now is a better baseline and gives more room for improvements. It's certainly going to make us take a small step forward."
