Sainz confirming that big update is coming in Barcelona 👍
Hopefully, but he says that they are bigger updates, not big. This was when being asked about current updates, with his response being that the updates in china are very small.
Give a man a fire, and he will be warm for a night.

Plenty of praise for McLaren during FP and on the Sky F1 show. Hoping McLaren can beat RBR in China. I think maybe RBR problems last race aren't really what they said and it's engine related really.

I think they'll be lucky if they got 2 cars into Q3..Hul and Rai are faster than them in addition to the 5 faster cars at the front!

5 cars at the front + 2 Renaults = 7 cars... Even if that happens, they could still get 2 cars in Q3

I don't think it will be luck. Car looks quick, if they get into Q3 it's on merit. About Hulkenberg and Raikonnen being faster, I'm not sure how are you so sure of this? I'd say it's possible that McLaren is slightly faster than both, remember Sainz was out of the race in Bahrain, and that Norris came through the field from 15th (including overtaking Raikonnen and Gasly on the track) to sit behind Hulkenberg.

I meant faster than them at this track..look at FP3 times! Anyway I hope the mclarens will find more pace for qualifying! Race pace looks good though

Q1 wasn’t great for Norris... Quiet a difference with Sainz... Sainz in 7th is very a great lap!

The Toro Rosso is also looking really quick... Very close to Kimi’s time... Let’s hope he can get the next 2 laps together!

Sky is very pro-McLaren vs Autosport being anti-McLaren
