McLaren’s Disappointment in Las Vegas Grand Prix
The race weekend in Las Vegas proved to be a challenging one for McLaren, as the team’s expectations fell short on the low-downforce street circuit. Despite their previous success in Austin, Mexico, and Brazil, this particular race turned out to be a different story.
In the qualifying session, Lando Norris faced a close call when his former team-mate Daniel Ricciardo beat him by a mere 0.020 seconds in Q1. As a result, Norris qualified 16th, facing a tough battle ahead. Meanwhile, Oscar Piastri followed closely behind in 19th place.
Challenges with Tyre Use
There were discussions among the McLaren team regarding their disappointing performance. It was revealed that the struggles stemmed from tyre use, rather than the car’s overall performance. This revelation shed light on the need for the team to reevaluate their strategies and make adjustments moving forward.
Although McLaren faced disappointment in Las Vegas, they are determined to learn from this experience and come back stronger. The team is fully aware of the areas they need to improve upon and are already working diligently to make the necessary changes. With their talented drivers and dedicated crew, McLaren is confident in their ability to bounce back and achieve better results in future races.
