Asked what key areas at McLaren he’d seen particular progress in this season, Brown said, as quoted by Motorsport.com: “Teamwork. If you look at things like winter testing, I was very pleased to see we were out first team out seven of eight days.

“When we had an issue we got right back to being next team out. Pitstops are really strong. We’ve had some technical advancement there, that’s just teamwork and focus. There’s a very positive vibe.

“The biggest thing I’ve noticed is everyone’s clear on their role, everyone’s motivated, and working really well together. That’s why you’re seeing things like good pitstops and good preparations.
