Mclaren Hopes to Start 2022 High with Perfect Partnership from Entain

British automobile giants McLaren has high hopes in the new upcoming season with their F1 counterparts McLaren Racing. The new season in 2022 comes with many changes and new sets of rules, but the Woking based team is hopeful of bright starts right from the beginning. According to their CEO Zak Brown, the team is doing financially sound as well thanks to multiple star-studded sponsorship lists under their belt.

McLaren has come in partnership with Entain, a leading sports betting and gambling company globally, in May 2021 ahead of Monaco Grand Prix. Paris Anatolitis, Managing Director of Party Brands and Commercial Director of Entain stated on behalf of the company, “We want Party to be a destination for customers around the world who enjoy games and sharing experiences around the sports and activities they love. This is about creating recreational content which encourages people to take a look and explore new ways of enjoying themselves with our brands.” The British team is in direct partnership with Partycasino and other high profile brands, under the name of Party Responsibly by Entain.

After a pretty decent outcome in the recently concluded season, the orange brigade now looks for a bigger aim and aiming for the highest prize possible. McLaren, who were in P4 in Constructor’s Championship fell short of their 2021 target. Having lost to P3 to Ferrari by some margin, the team from Britain is all set to come back stronger this season, the team believes.

Driver Lando Norris has put up some decent performance this season, raking up a few podiums and was P6 in driver’s standings. Meanwhile the other driver, Daniel Ricciardo (P8) fell short of his expectations. The team had huge expectations for the Aussie  maestro, however with new season in place in a few months times, Mr. Shoey is all set to take the tracks by storm. With Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo up for the uphill task, McLaren firmly believes they can do this in the season that’s ahead. It’ll now be interesting to see how the team from Woking performs against the heavyweights like Mercedes and Red Bull and take the fight to the top.

McLaren technical director James Key believes that the development rate will be extremely high in 2022 and they are keen to cope up with the changes as soon as possible. In an interview, James conveyed, “We’ve got to see how you perform against others etc. and work out the strengths and weaknesses against the competitors. We’re all in the same boat as teams in that respect. I think that would cause a lot of jumps in development and ideas as we progress in the first half of the season.”

The Englishman also stated, “There’s always a different, a new solution, a new avenue to be seen. I think we’ve still got a lot to learn, everyone’s got a lot to learn with the ‘22 cars. We’ve got to correlate them on track, got to see what everyone has done. There could be some real changes out there when we’ve seen other people’s cars. It will be interesting to see what people have done. I think the development rates will likely be extremely high. I think the nature of these regs are probably going to equal out a bit quicker than what we have now simply because there are so many different ways of doing things on the current cars.”
