Lando Norris has remained with McLaren for a third year but this time is partnered with former Red Bull and Renault driver, Daniel Ricciardo.
THE STORY OF 2020
McLaren got off to a flying start at the Austrian Grand Prix with Norris scoring his first career podium in finishing third.
Further strong showings followed as the team found itself locked in what would be a season-long battle with Racing Point and Renault for third place in the constructors' championship.
Sainz capitalised on a red flag at the Italian Grand Prix to finish second behind the AlphaTauri of Pierre Gasly, while he also took an early lead in the Portuguese GP after memorably passing both Mercedes cars in the opening stages.
Throughout the year team principal Andreas Seidl maintained the team was only the fifth fastest car on occasion and that in order to succeed, McLaren had to work at its maximum every weekend.
Winning the 'fight for third' in the Abu Dhabi season finale put the icing on the cake of a strong campaign, ending McLaren's relationship with Renault on a positive note.
