Brown wants more podiums with Miami upgrades

McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown says his team are aiming to score more podiums with their upcoming car updates following Lando Norris’s third place last weekend in Australia.

Speaking with Channel 4 in Melbourne, Brown said the team were working to introduce upgrades to their car after the Japanese Grand Prix next weekend.

“I think Miami’s the game plan at the moment,” he said. “We’re pushing hard, as is everybody else. But I think if we can stay on the development trajectory we’ve been on since the second half of last year, we should just get quicker and rack up some more podiums this year.”

“Lola Cars has a decorated history of success in chassis and aerodynamic design,” he continued. “This project will allow us to create a unique electrified platform with a software focus at its core to provide a basis for Lola’s wider plans in defining the future of motorsport technology.”
