McLaren says the concept and design process of the new car "focuses on laying the foundations for development of the car throughout the season" following the disappointing 2018, and Brown describes the car as the first step towards a return to the front of the grid. He is a driver I admire a lot because of how amazing he is. he is one of the best of all time. "Then we can have some more battles when we are racing for podiums and hopefully wins, but until that point, we have to keep working together".
McLaren F1 lifted the lid on its MCL34 for 2019 with a special launch event at the McLaren Technical Centre in Woking, U.K., as the team looks to bounce back from a run of difficult campaigns.
Sainz, who joins from Renault, said the team were resisting the temptation to set performance goals before getting a handle on their new car at pre-season testing in Spain next week.
Having been a McLaren test driver for the last two seasons, Norris was able to build a closer relationship with two-times world champion Alonso.
But with McLaren beginning their second season with Renault power, and with some big technical and management signings coming onboard - most notably ex-Toro Rosso man James Key, who's signed on as the team's Technical Director, and Andreas Seidl, who moves from Porsche to become McLaren's Managing Director - there is optimism in the team that its dynamic young driver line-up could help McLaren move further up the grid in 2019.
"The MCL34 is the result of an immense amount of hard work and dedication throughout our team", Brown said.
It's about more than just swiping right.
'I have got a live up to with the history of McLaren' said Norris. But I will try make it a positive effect.
"The way we tackled it was to recognise all the challenges we had and to continue to do that, and the way to do that is to focus on the job at hand". We are excited to see the car hit the track and there is the feeling of anticipation.
