McLaren’s revival was one of the big talking points of the 2019 Formula 1 season, with hopes high for another step in 2020.
The latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast takes a deep dive into McLaren’s situation and the impact the delay to the 2020 season and the deferral of the new technical regulations has on the team.
Mark Hughes, Scott Mitchell and Edd Straw reveal the key decisions that have laid the foundations for McLaren’s possible return to the front, and what impact the disrupted season has on that timeline.
There’s also a look at the inevitable compromises of switching to the Mercedes engine next season in a car carried over from this year’s Renault-powered campaign.
The match-up between Carlos Sainz Jr and Lando Norris once the season gets going is analysed as well, with the intra-team battle set to be one of the most fascinating of 2020.
