Former Formula One driver Johnny Herbert has told Paddock Eye that he sees no reason why McLaren can’t continue their momentum from 2019this season given the stability if the regulations for 2020.

Speaking to Paddock Eye at Autosport International on Saturday he said that believes that Andreas Seidle can continue to edge closer to the front of the field and challenge for more podium and points finishes and he also believes that there will be no interfere from the IndyCar programme from Gil’s point of view.

When it comes to 2021 the is not sure if the order is going to completely change and people will need to be smart with their developments which is what Mercedes managed to do from year 1 of the hybrid era but he believes that McLaren can certainly edge closer to the gap but he reckons they won’t be changing for wins.

When it came to the beginning of the hybrid era Johnny said that Mercedes chipped away and steadily improved to where they became the championship winning team they are today.
