Stoffel Vandoorne managed to during the GP of Mexico with his McLaren a one-stop strategy to the end, and that this was his team, an impressive feat.
Our compatriot managed to get it last weekend for the first time since the GP of Brazil in his McLaren to a place within the points to send. He did that also by a stint of no less than fifty-seven laps on the super soft tyres to the end.
His race engineer, Tom Stallard, left the world via Twitter know how impressive that performance was. He praised the performance of Vandoorne and found it really impressive how Stoffel error-free laps remained afmalen despite the high tyre wear.
Stallard explains, on the basis of a tweet from McLaren out how high we need to estimate.
“The inside of the linkervoorband looks smooth, but that is because the rubber is completely worn away,” says Stallard. “As impressive without errors, continue to drive with these tyres.”
Vandoorne was that the performance from the cockpit is not quite as impressive. In fact, he says that he has this season often been such a job but no one noticed was because he was outside the points ended.
“I think there are a couple of races ago good performance but now it is striking because it is also rewarded with points,” said Vandoorne.
“I am very pleased with the performance after the first round. We were last and we had to go to an overtaking race start, I am very happy about the way everything turned out.”
“We have a few good inhaalacties done on the job and we have the tyres to save on the crucial moments. We have attacked when it had to.”
The Belgians let us know that it’s easier to of his last races in F1 to enjoy as there are also good results.
“This is a great result for me, but also for the team. It is more important for the championship for the constructors, now I’m going to enjoy my last races,” decision Vandoorne.
