Sainz: McLaren aiming to keep momentum up during German Grand Prix weekend

McLaren has cemented themselves in fourth place after positive results in the last five Grands Prix. This run of good results has helped them build a 21 point gap over rivals Renault and Carlos Sainz is keen to keep this momentum running through the German Grand Prix weekend.  

McLaren is the most improved Formula 1 team during the 2019 season. Sainz's boss, Andreas Seidl, has asked the whole team to avoid complacency after a run of good results. The Spanish driver certainly isn't showing any signs of complacency as the summer break nears. 

“It's been an interesting first half of the season and I’m determined to keep pushing as hard as ever before the summer break. There is still a long way to go in the Championship, but all our focus is on the next stop – Germany!" Sainz said. 

"Hockenheim is a classic track on the F1 calendar and we head there aiming to keep our momentum up. I spent some time with the team back in the factory after the British Grand Prix. Everyone back in Woking is working flat out and their efforts have been key to staying competitive within the midfield. Let’s keep up the good work!”

Sainz finished the British Grand Prix in 6th place, ahead of everyone in the midfield. His teammate, Lando Norris, just missed out on a points finish.
