Brown pleased with McLaren form but is not resting on his laurels

McLaren are in a strong position in the battle for midfield supremacy but Chief Executive Officer of McLaren Racing, Zak Brown is wary about how close the midfield battle is but is pleased with the performance of the team.

McLaren have impressed this season in the fight to be best of the rest. The form of their new partnership of Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris enough to see them sit fourth. They hold a 39 point lead over their nearest rivals Toro Rosso but Brown is wary of the challenge they still face.

“I’m not sure we’re solidly the best team in the midfield, because it’s so close, so I think that’s why we need to keep our head down,” Brown said as quoted by MotorsportWeek.

“We’re still early enough in the season that you can go from fourth to eighth in no time.

“We wanted to improve. Our goal was let’s just improve on last year, which in reality we were seventh, not sixth, because of the whole points situation."

Despite the caution, Brown is satisfied with the team's form and wants to keep focused to achieve their goals.

“I’m pleased with how we’re doing, and just want to keep our head down and stay focused, because a bad weekend by us and a good weekend by someone else, and you can just fall down the order quickly. But everyone is doing a good job," Brown added.
