Carlos Sainz: Positive relationships at McLaren helps overall performance

Carlos Sainz believes that the positive atmosphere at McLaren is responsible for some of their success so far this season. The team have dominated the midfield battle and the Spanish racer says the relationships at the team are very strong off the track. 

Sainz has raced for a few teams in his Formula 1 career but is enjoying his time at McLaren the most. 

"Compared to Toro Rosso and Renault, the atmosphere is different," Sainz said to F1technical.net. "At McLaren, we are enjoying a very good team atmosphere. With Lando, myself and the engineers, we manage to create a very good atmosphere at the circuit, not the PR people, they are always complaining about problems, but we keep ourselves chilled at every Grand Prix.

"Apart from that, I must say we manage to find something different in the paddock, I hope we keep it for the future, because [it helps] the overall performance of the team. This atmosphere drives us forward.”

It is clear to see than Norris and Sainz have a strong relationship and that the relationship with the engineers and other team members is part of the success of the team.
