McLaren Racing pit crew gave an insight into how much work goes into preparing cars for a race weekend and how it feels when the team succeeds.
Andrew Salt, No.1 Race Mechanic at McLaren Racing, explained: “My favourite part of the race weekend is easily qualifying. The car has to be turned around very quickly. That includes changing the front wing settings, changing the tyres and putting fuel in the car. Sometimes we have to complete all of that within a minute. It’s an adrenaline rush from start to finish.”
McLaren Racing’s Build Test Technician, James Herbert, added: “Seeing our cars on the podium is a massive thing. It’s so rewarding when you see the reaction on the drivers’ faces and everyone at the track.
“We talk about it on the Monday after a race, even if it’s not such a good race, but everyone is more hyped up if you’ve had a good one.”
