McLaren team boss Andrea Stella is not satisfied with his team's results at the Spanish Grand Prix, but a new opportunity awaits him next weekend as well. At the Canadian Grand Prix at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, Oscar Piastri and Lando Norris will try to take the points.

"We come away from Spain with a less than satisfactory result. We were of course very happy to start the race with both cars in the top 10 after a positive qualifying session. The race proved to be more difficult in terms of pace and due to Lando's incident at Turn 1. We take the learning onboard and we go again," Stella said in a press release.

Norris and Piastri should provide points

McLaren are not really running well as a team at the moment. In the constructors' championship, the orange-car team is in sixth place. Norris managed 12 points this season, while Piastri only managed five.

"Canada is a track that many drivers enjoy. It's another challenging circuit, fast-flowing but with low-speed corners and loads of braking and traction. We're on the right trajectory as a team for the long-term foundation and we know results will start to come to us once we improve the car. In the meantime, we'll try and extract the most from the next GP in Canada."
