  • I think they'll have their eyes set on 2nd, but Racing Point did them some favors last year in giving up their #3 spot. I think the bronze medal is going to be even tougher to hold this year, and dodging a setback will keep McLaren busy. Ferrari has a new engine and Aston Martin will have more experience with the Merc engine. Should be a crazy battle for best of the midfield.

So far they could have focus more on their team's capacity and build something new for 2025 with Mercedes. The Renault engine is coming back nicely and Renault treated McLaren as an equal. Just a matter of perspective

I expect the introduction of Danial R to the team to further improve the car through his experience and close relationship with engineers. Hoping that the two drivers work together to maximise updates which will allow the TEAM to further advance its competitive edge in the mid-field and close the gap to the leaders .... increasing the pressure on those ahead redulting in more competitive racing for ALL fans. Keen to see the results of every time this new car is on the track.

  • With a somewhat resurgent Ferrari and continually improving Aston Martin, I guess they'll drop to 5th, falling behind those two. Add to that the compromise of having to fit a new engine, and any performance penalties that carries - despite its superiority - 5th place is all I'm giving them. It will be interesting to see how it plays out though, because on the good side, a slightly better driver is arriving, but will need to learn the environment, while Norris will be stronger again. Mercedes power should also mean a higher power level being delivered through races, something Renault won't have been able to give as well.
