The pilot of McLaren Stoffel Vandorn behind his teammate Fernando Alonso expressed dissatisfaction with the competitiveness of the machine MCL32 at the Grand Prix of Australia.
In contrast to the two-time world champion 25-year-old Belgian, at least, finished, but it can be called cold comfort, given that he took the last, 13th place, behind even the rider Sauber, the F1 rookie Antonio Giovinazzi.
“The only positive thing is that I got to finish, because, to be honest, I did not expect, – quotes Vandorn F1i. We finished the race, but we had no claim in Australia. We didn’t have enough power to fight with rivals. We were in a separate category.
We are the last or so. Our car is simply not competitive.
Jos Verstappen: What is the third year in a row doing the engineers at McLaren-Honda?
I was unhappy, but that’s okay. When you lose three seconds per lap, there is nothing pleasant, because in fact you do not participate in the race.
We will bring updates to Shanghai and Bahrain, to try to add, but understand that we need time. The next few races will be as heavy.”
