Seidl: The margin between a good and bad weekend is extremely narrow

McLaren team boss Andreas Seidl has admitted the difference between a good and bad weekend in Formula 1 is "extremely narrow".

The Woking-based team had a disappointing weekend in Montreal last time out, following a strong qualifying session prior to the race. An unknown problem to Lando Norris' car forced the Brit to retire from the race early, with Carlos Sainz being overtaken late on to just finish outside of the top 10.

Seidl has only recently taken over at McLaren and has enjoyed a strong start with his new team, but the former Porsche boss knows the fine-line that can be between a good and bad weekend.

"We head back to Europe ready to push again," Seidl said. "The French Grand Prix is an event steeped in history and the current circuit offers good opportunities for racing; I'm looking forward to visiting.

"The midfield battle is proving to be very close and competitive. Canada showed that the margin between a good wekeend and a not so good weekend is extremely narrow.

"As a team, we continue to focus on our race-weekend execution, as well as developing and improving the MCL34 at each race-weekend. With two-thirds of the season left to go, we still have a lot to play for. We are pushing hard to maximise our performance at every opportunity."
