Sainz expects McLaren to be stronger at Suzuka than Sochi | RaceFans Round-up

In the round-up: Carlos Sainz Jnr believes will have a stronger race this weekend than they did last time out.

What they say

Sainz led the midfield home at Sochi and is optimistic for Suzuka:

I think we can be stronger in Japan than we were [in Sochi] – I never felt at home this [track] with the McLaren, which shows that we still need to do a bit of progress.

But at the same time it is a track that, looking at the characteristics, was always going to be tough for us. I think hopefully Japan can be a bit better.
