DB-C90 commented on the post, McLaren must sustain “great record” on reliability to fight for third – Seidl

In the round-up: McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl says the team must keep up its strong reliability record this season to have a chance of winning the fight for third place in the constructors championship.

What they say

With three races to go McLaren are five points behind third-placed Racing Point in the constructors championship, 13 points ahead of Renault and 19 clear of Ferrari:

It’s important now on our side to focus on ourselves to see that we can still extract more performance out of the car, especially on Saturdays.

Also it’s important to keep the level of reliability up. So far we have really a great record on our side, on the team’s side this year not having a single DNF in qualifying in the races, which is a great step forward compared to previous years and shows that the team is putting in a lot of great work back home and here at the track.

Then it will be important to have clean race weekends, optimise the operation as well out here in terms of strategy, in terms of pit stops. And together with our two drivers us I think we can keep this battle alive and that’s what we will focus on.
Andreas Seidl
