McLaren boss Andreas Seidl has said that the budget cap imposed this year means teams will have to go “all in” when it comes to development.
Formula 1 teams in 2022 have faced an extraordinary challenge: build an entirely new car whilst also keeping costs under a strict budget cap.
At the beginning of the season, it looked like McLaren may have failed that challenge. A combined six points from both drivers in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia had Zak Brown and co at the McLaren Technology Centre scrambling for a solution.
The work did pay dividends though and their fortunes changed in Australia with a podium for Lando Norris.
