Despite being one of only two teams to not score points in Australia at the start of the season, McLaren has established itself as the firm "best of the rest" constructor. The British team have an all-new line-up for 2019, as Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris have wasted little time in getting to grip with their new surroundings.

Furthermore, Norris is a rookie to Formula 1 this year and is just 19-years-old, he's been an inspired signing by Zak Brown. McLaren are a long way off the Red Bull in third, but they're 20 points ahead of fifth-placed Renault, the team that supplies their engines.

In the previous round in Austria, Norris legitimately finished ahead of a Red Bull, while Sainz went from 19th on the grid to eighth at the chequered flag. The orange team are definitely the one in-form in the midfield and it's hard to see who will beat them other than the top three teams on Sunday.
