McLaren might have lost third to Ferrari in the Constructors' Championship following today's race but they salavged good points considering Ferrari's better grid slots.
Lando Norris had a poor first lap but made a really solid recovery to P5 as he avoided all the mayhem in the race to bag 10 critical points for his team in their fight against Ferrari.
Daniel Ricciardo brought his McLaren home in P9, just behind Carlos Sainz as McLaren limited their losses to their old rivals.
When interviewed post-race, Lando Norris comments, "We had some positive moments, but also a few difficult periods. I flat-spotted the Hard a bit, so that became tricky for the last few laps before the red flag, but not too bad beforehand."
He continues, "The last start, I felt like I got a good launch, and had a good run on the outside but there wasn’t really much room with a couple of cars on the inside."
He adds, "It just all bottlenecked into Turn Two and I felt a hit from behind. I couldn’t really do much, but we’ll keep working on our plan and keep moving forward."
To conclude, "I also just want to pay tribute to Mansour and send my condolences to Kathy and his entire family. He made a massive contribution to both McLaren and the entire sport, and he will be greatly missed."
