McLaren Shelves MCL60 Development to Focus on 2024 F1 Car
In a strategic move, McLaren team boss Andrea Stella has officially announced the cessation of development work on the MCL60 for the current season. The team has shifted its focus towards crafting a competitive car for the 2024 Formula 1 campaign.
Throughout the 2023 season, McLaren has been a standout in terms of in-season improvements. The MCL60 has transformed from a car struggling to secure points to a consistent podium contender. However, with an eye on the future, the team has opted to minimize further enhancements for the remainder of this year.
It’s a common trend in Formula 1 for teams to reevaluate their priorities as the season reaches its midway point, especially when a clear leader, like Red Bull, has established dominance in both the drivers’ and constructors’ championships.
