The McLaren CEO is full of praise for his two drivers after a 2019 season in which the two young men have been very competitive.
In 2019, Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris clearly played an important role at McLaren thanks to their performances at first, but also thanks to their good mood in the paddock of F1.
After the “Alonso” years, where the Spanish pilot had many times criticized the Honda engine which equipped the McLaren between 2015 and 2017, the atmosphere within the British team was much better in 2019 and Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris there have largely contributed.
"They both did a remarkable job (in 2019), they piloted like future world champions. " said McLaren CEO Zak Brown about Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris.
“Carlos, in his fifth year in the sport, really performed. He's very fast, it's great to work with him, he's a solid driver. "
"Lando, who is the youngest British driver of all time, has shown great maturity. We knew he was fast, but he raced like a mature and experienced Formula 1 driver. "
"And of course, when you put them together, they're pretty magical whether it's in the garage or on the track. They feel the support of the fans, and we look forward to running with them for many more years. "
Last year, the McLaren team experienced the strongest progression among grid teams, finishing the 2019 campaign in fourth place in the world constructors' championship.
