McLaren Racing heads to Brazil this weekend for the final race of a triple header stretch which brought Formula One from Austin, Texas, to Mexico City and now to Sao Paolo.

The Woking-based outfit has had a great few races that culminated in a double-point finish in Mexico last weekend. Looking ahead to this weekend’s race at the Interlagos circuit, Lando Norris commented saying:

Brazil, let’s go! It’s the end of the triple header and the final Sprint weekend of the season. There’s so much history and heritage at this race, particularly with McLaren and Senna. I always enjoy coming here, so hopefully it’s another opportunity for us to score some good points.

“The car had great pace in Mexico, allowing me to gain 12 places, which I’m pretty happy with. We know what we’re capable of, we just have to go out there and do it.

Oscar Piastri is looking forward to his first trip to the Brazilian Grand Prix saying:

“I’m looking forward to racing in Brazil. It’s a Sprint weekend which I enjoy, and it gives us more chances for points. I’ve never raced here before, so I’m excited to get on track at such an iconic circuit.

“The last few races have been reassuring, especially considering where we were at the start of the season. Mexico was slightly tougher for me with the damage, but I’ve debriefed with the team, and I’ll take the learnings into this weekend as we aim for more points.

McLaren Racing Team Principal Andrea Stella commented saying:

After a strong race to end our weekend in Mexico with points finishes for both cars, we turn our attention to Brazil. We keep being encouraged with the performance of our car and hope to be competitive once again.

“The team remain focused as we come to the final race of the triple header. It’s been a very busy few weeks, but everyone continues to be motivated and perform at the highest level. With the final Sprint event of the season, there’s a bigger prospect to score points and we aim to maximise our opportunities across the weekend.
