Daniel Ricciardo showed off McLaren’s new Method A single car on Monday (February 15) alongside his new teammate Lando Norris.
The 31-year-aged, who joined Norris in pulling the wraps off the papaya and blue car in an on line start, has joined from Renault on a three-year agreement and as a established winner.
He stood on the podium two times very last year, winning a guess that obliged then-Renault crew boss Cyril Abiteboul to get a tattoo of his driver’s option.
Ricciardo, winner of seven races with Red Bull, will be the senior driver alongside 21-year-aged Norris who is starting up his 3rd season.
Norris advised he would be doing a lot more of the learning than Ricciardo.
“So, I believe owning one more new teammate or my 2nd teammate in Method A single, Daniel Ricciardo, I believe is pretty enjoyable. A lot of encounter on his aspect — race wins, podiums and so on. So, it truly is great for me to understand from anyone different,” stated Norris.
When it came to who McLaren’s major rivals could possibly be in the forthcoming Method A single season, CEO Zak Brown experienced his eyes on Mercedes.
“We experienced a wonderful year very last year. I believe what would be a very good year for us this year is closing the hole to whoever wins the championship. I have a sneaky suspicion that’ll be Mercedes. But it was so near very last year,” he stated.
