McLaren had an unexpectedly good weekend at Albert Park. Daniel Ricciardo was afraid to finish his home race outside the points, but nothing could be further from the truth. With fifth and sixth places, the team scored two points for the first time this season.

It wasn’t a good start to the season for Ricciardo: he missed his test days after contracting the coronavirus, followed by two disappointing races in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. And then the much-anticipated home race in Australia approached. The driver’s home from Perth has already had to skip Formula 1 for a number of years, so returning to that track is even more special for the driver and fans alike.

Norris looks forward

While Ricciardo is still on top of glory about racing in his home country, his teammate Lando Norris is already thinking about the upcoming races. Norris says the car hasn’t seen a lot of changes compared to the past two races. So he expects that last weekend’s performance was mainly related to circuit design. “To finish these positions more often we need to keep working on our weaknesses as not all courses are as smooth and fast as Albert Park. So this may still be our best result for a while as we now move towards a few circuits where we may feel more solid. ” Motorsport.com
