The Spanish driver called the impression of the McLaren’s speed the brightest moment of the season. However, in his opinion, it will not be so easy for the team to keep the advantage in it at the upcoming Grand Prix.
Carlos said that the high speed of McLaren cars on the straight lines, recorded in the previous three races, still doesn’t give reason to argue that the British team will have an advantage over rivals in this indicator at the Azerbaijan GP.
"To be honest, a good speed on the straights is the best impression of the season. For the fifth season in Formula 1, I finally felt what it was like to be really fast,” – the Spaniard told.
“However, we must remember that in Bahrain and China, the angle of attack of our wings was smaller than our competitors had. And when everyone in Baku has a configuration with a small level of downforce, we will have to squeeze the maximum out of it in order not to lose the advantage. To still be fast on the straights."
