“Hopefully, it will make McLaren back to what it was, a winning team.

The former Toro Rosso and Renault driver plans on matching the team’s commitment by spending plenty of time in the UK.

"My idea is to be much more in the United Kingdom this year.

“I feel very committed to the cause, with this two-year plan that we have ahead of us.
