The McLaren Honda Formula One team are set to embark on an ambitious development programme with the MP4-30 as they look to build on their first point’s finish of the season.
The Monaco Grand Prix saw Jenson Button secure an eighth place finish for the Woking based outfit which was fantastic result for the outfit who have had an extremely tough start to their new relationship with Honda which begin this season.
McLaren have now revealed that they will introduce an upgrade package for the Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring next month. The team also plan to introduce a further upgrade package for the Hungarian Grand Prix which is the final race before the mid-season summer break. McLaren head to the Canadian Grand Prix next week in Montreal which has similar characteristics to the last race in Monaco in that it is described as a mix of a permanent and temporary race track.
Montreal has been a happy hunting ground for the McLaren Honda racing team and they will be hoping that they can be competitive next weekend although they are lacking in the power unit department which could prove to be problematic for the team on the long straights in Montreal due to their lack of horse power.
The team will be hoping to use their result in Monaco last time out at as platform to build on in the next few Grand Prix.
