McLaren • Formula 1 •  Daniel Ricciardo

The McLaren duo were left surprised with some drastic changes to the team strategy ahead of the French Grand Prix.

McLaren has shown support for Daniel Ricciardo after the Australian released a statement reaffirming his commitment to the team after the Austrian Grand Prix.

McLaren is the latest team to abandon its launch sidepod solution as the Formula 1 grid appears to be converging on similar designs.

Bouncing around the Paul Ricard circuit, Lando Norris says the return of porpoising may not be a bad thing for McLaren as it could mean they have unlocked extra downforce.

McLaren team boss Andreas Seidl insists that there were no surprises when Ricciardo opted to release the declaration.

Although Ricciardo admits that he is struggling more than Norris to understand the MCL36 car, Seidl denies that it is hindering McLaren’s development programme.
