Representatives of the mid-field McLaren team on the last day of testing worked out the program with two cars. At the end of the day McLaren drivers were placed in P11 (Carlos Sainz) and P14 (Lando Norris).
Despite the rather modest results, the drivers are satisfied with their cars and feel confident in them.
Lando Norris admitted that for a perfect day, he was prevented by red flags on the track, which made it impossible for him to drive a longer distance.
"It’s been a decent day. It wasn’t perfect, with a few little setbacks here and there, and a few red flags too which meant we didn’t get to do as many laps as planned, but we only missed a few. Apart from that, I got a better feeling for the car and I feel more confident. We’ve taken a few little steps forward," Lando told.
"On the whole, it was a positive day. These first three days have been a positive way to start the season and to set us up for next week."
Lando's teammate Carlos Sainz shared his impressions of the final day of test, saying the first week was quite positive, and also McLaren has a lot of room to improve the car.
"In general, it’s been another good morning going through the whole test programme, still understanding the new car and working through our test items. I’m looking forward to going into a second week of testing after a positive first one," driver said.
