“Because of the aerodynamic development, I speak a lot about aerodynamics but that is where the forces come from essentially and indeed, I think it goes back to some seasons before the current season.
“In a way, it is a McLaren set of characteristics in terms of how the car delivers the aerodynamic forces which is not new to this year’s car. This year’s car is a close sister of last year’s car and there is certainly a close relationship to the previous year’s car.
“In a way, it has to do with the methodology if you want which can produce quick cars."
