GP Bahrain: Stoffel Vandoorne sum the first point of McLaren in 2016


just 48 hours I was in Japan, in the test of the Super Formula. Two days later, your name looks like in the select group of drivers who have scored in the Formula 1. Stoffel Vandoorne will never forget the GP of Bahrain, the test in the debut in the maximum category of motorsport world and has won his first point at the end of tenth. A point that not only has importance to him, but that is the first point of the team McLaren-Honda in the season 2016, while Jenson Button has dropped out in the sixth lap after a sudden loss of power.

The ‘child’ back of the office has taken center stage. Stoffel Vandoorne has been tenth at Sakhir after a career very positive has shown his talent. Despite this, the belgian took his tenth place with philosophy: “This result was more or less what I expected. Maximize my opportunity and I’m quite satisfied. The output was a little difficult because there were remains of fibre on the left and right. It was pretty hectic, because there were a lot of moments to fight during the first round”.

by way of comprehensive analysis, Vandoorne explained: “From the beginning of the end of the week, I felt very comfortable with the car and very comfortable to do a good job. I’m glad not to have committed any error operating. Was very focused on that aspect and I came away with a point, which is a good result. In this line, Stoffel concluded: “This weekend was a great opportunity for me because I showed a little bit of what I’m capable of doing and now just have to wait to see what happens next. That is not my decision, I can only see what brings the future“.


Much more negative has been the GP of Bahrain for Jenson Button. The
british pilot saw as their good start was no good for anything for a
problem in the power unit: “it Has been a weekend of hard,
because I think that we could have added a good amount of points. Yet
so, I think that we can rescue the positive aspects in terms of pace,
because we have made real progress with the car this weekend.
Stoffel has done a good job this weekend and has managed to
our first point of the year”.

Analyzing your own career,
Button explained his problems: I have had a loss of power and the
car stopped
. We do not yet know exactly what the problem was,
but, the car stopped in dry. At the beginning of the ride I felt problems
in the curve 2, but in the end the car stopped in the curve 10. It is a
pity. I Had a good start, I outlasted three cars in the braking of the
10 curve
and was satisfied with my role. I insist, it was a pity because
the cars that were behind have finished fifth and sixth. Could have
had a good fight with them”.
