Changes McLaren have made are paying off

McLaren are in a rich vein of form at the moment, and Andreas Seidl believes the changes Zak Brown has made to the constructor are starting to pay off as they establish themselves as the best of the rest.

McLaren are currently fourth in the Constructors' Championship with their new pairing of Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris seventh and ninth in the Drivers' equivalent respectively. With their driving lineup confirmed for next year, with both drivers set to reprise their roles in 2020, there appears to be a sense of stability at McLaren.

Seidl thinks the team are reaping the rewards of all the work put in by Zak Brown, who has been CEO of McLaren Racing since April 2018. Seidl told Chris Medland of Racer: “It was always clear for me that McLaren is an established racing team.

“There’s a lot of talent, a lot of commitment which I saw straight away from the first day on it.

“That was good to see, which was also proof that the changes that Zak (Brown) had initiated already last year are paying off.

They have nothing to do with me and now it’s simply down to me — together with James (Key) and my leading guys — to work out the clear plan and to send it to Zak, how I want to approach the next years. The 2021 regulations, obviously, play an important role as well."
