"WE’LL KEEP WORKING HARD, AND WE HOPE TO IMPROVE IN DUE COURSE"
The Bahrain Grand Prix started in frustrating fashion for the McLaren-Honda team, when a water-pressure issue was detected in the #2 car of Stoffel Vandoorne on the way to the grid.

"A CHALLENGING TIME HERE IN BAHRAIN"

 

In qualifying, both drivers were unable to fully capitalise on their track time. Stoffel, having had limited running during free practice on Friday, had done relatively little mileage under twilight conditions. He finished Q1 in 17th place.

“WE ARE MAXIMISING OUR POTENTIAL”

 

Under Friday's blazing desert sun and in 39 degrees, the team executed planned set-up changes on both cars between runs during the first practice session of the day. A floor change on Stoffel’s car and a rear wing change on Fernando’s car meant they completed 10 and 14 laps respectively.

The Bahrain Grand Prix was first staged in 2004. Since then it’s been held every year except for 2011. There have been various iterations of the race and the circuit layout: in 2010 the longer, endurance layout was used and in 2014 the start time was delayed until 6pm. This year’s race will be the fourth to be staged under floodlights.
