McLaren has brought new brake lines to Bahrain after a disastrous second week of testing. This means that the problems are a thing of the past for now, but according to Andreas Seidl this is a temporary solution and the team is working hard to develop new brakes.
After a strong week of testing in Barcelona, McLaren had a second week of testing in Bahrain. The team from Working only managed 327 laps in three days. In comparison, the AlphaTauri and Alfa Romeo completed 422 laps. Norris, who due to Ricciardo’s absence after testing positive for the corona virus, continued to suffer from overheating brakes and thus was unable to complete the program at all. The problem was with the brake lines, so McLaren came up with new brake lines.
A temporary solution
“It’s a very difficult part when you look at the whole car. It was really a race against time to find a solution. The people of Woking really worked hard to do it,” Seidl told. They have GPF.
Seidl is confident that the brake coolant problems will not return this season. “We know where the problem was. Now we have a temporary solution for it and now we just have to fix it,” concludes the German.
