Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo admit that it is now time to focus on the next race at Sochi where they want to perform well.
Why it matters: The McLaren drivers know that their pace will not be the same as it was at the Italian GP and the fight to keep the P3 in the Constructors’ Championship will be tough.
- Ricciardo admits that winning at Monza was fantastic, but he needs to stay focused on what’s next since he wants to keep the momentum going.
- Norris adds that the team needs to keep working hard on the car the whole weekend in every single detail.
What they had to say:
- “I’ve definitely taken time to enjoy the moment but now it’s time to focus on Russia. I want to build on my Monza performance this weekend and will be pushing to score important points to keep up the fight with our competitors. Sochi can be a tricky circuit to make a move, so it’s important to make the most of qualifying to give us the best chance for points come Sunday,” Ricciardo commented.
- “We’re not getting carried away as we know it won’t be like this every weekend. We need to continue to put ourselves in the best position possible and maximize the car, pit-stops, strategy, and everything in between,” Norris explained.
