Andreas Seidl spoke to MotorLat and more selected media in a press conference and the McLaren Team Principal shred his thoughts on the updates that seem to be pushing forward the development of the Woking-based team.

“I wouldn't say I feel fully comfortable because we were up against some strong competition with strong drivers. I'd say that grid order consists quite a bit depending on the different tracks and the conditions and elections as well,” he said.

“So therefore, I think it's still too early to say, our target is clear, we want to fight for P4 in the constructors' championship. I think we have everything in the team to make possible that Lando and Daniel do that, so we need to make sure we keep developing this car.”

As McLaren is fueled post-Monaco after scoring 9 points for the constructors’ championship, Seidl speaks on what the Formula 1 circus expects at Baku and Montreal on the next races on the calendar.

“In terms of those races, I think we must go with this package we're having.”

“There’s always some fine tuning or some minor updates coming in plan, but in terms of comparatives is difficult to predict, to be honest, because again, we made a good step forward on Barcelona, addressing certain weaknesses in the car to go ahead. At the same time, a lot of other cars did as well.”

“So, Baku and Montreal are different tracks and I think it's really difficult to predict, because, as I said before, we have seen big swings from the pecking orders all this weekend and this year, therefore, we are very cautious when making too many predictions.”

"It's all relative to the others. As I said before, honestly, it’s so difficult. It's so early with these new cars. You have seen how quickly everything can swing from one race to the next one, from one track to the next one.

"Everyone has updated the cars now, or most of the teams have updated their cars for Barcelona. And what that all means is that now with all the upgrades everyone brought for these upcoming tracks, to be honest, impossible to predict anything.

"And also don't forget the competition is so tight with everyone one or two tenths up or down, that instead of being in a position to fight for P7 or P8, is only P13 or P14. That's the competition we are in. Obviously what is important is that we maximize everything we have in our hands."
