After their consistent perfomance in first three races of the season, the Mclaren team seems to have hit a roadblock, as they have failed to extract pace from their car both in Bahrain and Spain. Heading into Monaco Grand Prix weekend, here is what their drivers are hoping for.
Lewis Hamilton is quite confident as he heads into the race weekend. He has scored points in every race so far and is only 8 points adrift of the championship leader. In a season which is so closely contested, consistency is going to be crucial and so Lewis Hamilton has all possible reasons to be confident about his championship chances. Nonetheless, Lewis is that type of driver who races to win and so anything short of victory is unsatisfying.
Last Weekend in Spain, Jenson Button had a nightmare of a time with the balance of his Mclaren. So he will be looking to sort out handling issues as quickly as possible. Last year, according to Jenson, he had a fantastic car beneath but was not able to extract maximum of the opportunity, so he heads to Monaco with unfinished business.
Though Mclaren is a sort of car which isn’t suited to tight tracks like Monaco, Jenson is confident of getting on top of balance issues which has affected him in the past two races.
