Racing Point don’t know what to expect at Silverstone
Racing Point driver Lance Stroll has said that his team don’t know what to expect at the next race at Silverstone.
The midfield has tightened up in 2019 and a few tenths can be difference between a top ten qualifying position or ending up at the lower end of the grid.
Stroll believes that Racing point are making improvements but it is difficult to judge how much ground they are making up.
“It’s hard to know what to expect in terms of performance because it’s a very tight midfield.” said Stroll.
“I felt quite happy with the balance in Austria and we are chipping away each race to find improvements to the car.”
Racing Point have struggled in recent races and have not scored any points since Stroll finished ninth after an impressive drive in the Canadian Grand Prix.
They currently sit seventh in the Constructor’s Championship, three points behind Alfa Romeo.
The team has been working on additional updates in order to get on top of their issues and Stroll is hopeful they can provide some stronger results.
Stroll added: “There’s a big effort happening in all areas of the team.”
“It’s a determined group of people and I know we have some good things in the pipeline which will take us in the right direction.”
Although the team are now under Canadian ownership they are based at Silverstone and the circuit is regarded as their home Grand Prix.
The nature of the circuit also provides a great challenge and has always been a driver’s favourite and Stroll is no exception.
“I always enjoy the British Grand Prix. It’s almost my second home because I visit our factory every week for simulator and engineering sessions.” said Stroll.
“It’s just a fun track to drive because it’s so quick.”
“Corners such as Maggotts and Becketts are the ones I enjoy the most. It’s where the car comes alive because you have so much grip and it just makes you smile inside your helmet.”
