Executive Director at McLaren Technology Group, Zak Brown, is confident McLaren will be moving forward in 2017. Though he won’t making any predictions about McLaren’s performance, he says all the indications show the team will be hitting the targets they thought reasonable. “I think our 2017 chassis will be a decent one,” Brown told F1.com. “I’m not going to make any precise predictions but all the indications are that, relative to the targets we thought were realistically attainable under the new regs, our guys have done a very good job.” Since Honda re-joined Formula 1 with the team in 2015, McLaren have been improving, but the starting point was the back of the grid. Brown doesn’t expect McLaren to be challenging for race wins this season, but is confident the team will be continuing that progress. “We won’t be at the front of the grid in 2017,” he said. “But we’re working incredibly hard, together, as one team, and the progress is clear to see… We know we’ll win together in the end – we don’t know when so don’t ask me to make that prediction – but as I say we’re making progress and that’s the important thing.” Brown’s main aim for the season will be to progress, both on and off track.
