McLaren duo aiming to be competitive by Monaco

(McLaren Honda)

McLaren Honda drivers Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button believe that the Woking based outfits best opportunity to be competitive in the next couple of Grand Prix will come in next month’s Monaco Grand Prix.

The team endured a mixed Grand Prix last time out at the Bahrain Night race as although Fernando Alonso finished the race in eleventh place, Jenson Button failed to start the Grand Prix due to various mechanical issues with the MP4-30 which meant that the 2009 world champion could only complete 17 laps of the Sakhir circuit over the course of the weekend.

Honda will introduce a new power unit upgrade for the Spanish Grand Prix next time out and McLaren believe that the upgrade will help the team at the following race in Monaco as that circuit needs less power due to the fact that it is a street circuit.

Alonso believes that the low power circuits such as Monaco will help the team to be more competitive but that right now the team just need to take it step by step and see what happens next time out in Spain.
