“It is a strong team with two strong drivers” – McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl has confirmed bringing upgrades for the Hungarian Grand Prix.
McLaren is currently P3 in the Constructors’ Standings and is in no mood to relinquish that position. Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo have amassed 163 points so far, with the former leading the line.
And to ensure this consistency, McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl has given a boost to the team by confirming upgrades for the upcoming Hungarian Grand Prix.
“We are bringing some upgrades to Hungary for our car in order to make sure we keep this battle up.
“It is great for us that we are in P3 in the Constructors’ Championship, and after 10 races, 163 points is again a big step forward for us compared to last year. So I am very happy about that.”

McLaren wary of Ferrari threat
Ferrari has made massive improvements from their disappointing P6 finish last season. The team comprising Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz is currently P4, just 15 points shy of traditional rivals McLaren.
Seidl has acknowledged this and how important it is for them to extend and maintain their lead over the Italian giants. Ferrari edged over McLaren in the British GP, Leclerc taking home a well-deserved podium.
“I am also not surprised by the steps they can make in a season, as it is a strong team with two strong drivers. They also have all of the resources that they need in order to react to problems. They have the team with the experience to react to the problems so it is not a surprise.
“It will be a very tough battle until the end of the season.”
