McLaren combative: 'There is no reason to give up this fight'

McLaren seemed to be able to secure third place in the Constructors' Championship with Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo. Ferrari, however, hindered the team in recent races and even took over that position from its competitor after the Mexican Grand Prix. McLaren is eager to do something back in Brazil.

It came as a blow to Andreas Seidl that the Italian formation took over the bronze position. According to the team boss, however, the battle is not yet over. "The most important thing is to accept that days like this in Mexico can happen in racing. They are part of the sport," he assessed in conversation with Motorsport.com. "At the same time, they can also happen to your opponent. So there is no reason to give up this fight. It's important to keep going."

McLaren continues to fight for the next four races

Where McLaren was still 17,5 points ahead of Ferrari a few weeks ago, the Italians now have 13,5 points more. It shows the improvements of Ferrari that left a good impression the last weeks.

"Fortunately, there is another race next weekend, so then we can try to hit back. Of course, the result in Mexico is disappointing. But again: this could also happen to our competitor. We have to keep focusing on ourselves and make sure we score points consistently. We didn't manage to do that in Mexico."
