Fernando Alonso is hoping for a “trouble-free” race, while Stoffel Vandoorne believes China will be “equally difficult” as Australia.
McLaren racing director Eric Boullier is expecting the team to struggle throughout the Chinese Grand Prix weekend.
Stoffel Vandoorne has admitted he is finding it “difficult” to make a good impression in Formula 1 due to McLaren’s ongoing and wide-ranging problems.
Having finished the Australian Grand Prix last of the classified runners, Stoffel Vandoorne concedes that is McLaren-Honda’s genuine position in the rankings – “last.”
With McLaren’s testing programme reduced to short runs, Stoffel Vandoorne fears there could be problems that the team has “not exactly discovered yet.”
