Brawn: McLaren ‘paused for thought’ after Honda win

Former Ferrari boss says McLaren team have ‘paused for though’ after seeing Honda take its first victory since their return in 2015.

McLaren and Honda divorce came in 2017 after three disappointing seasons together.

‘McLaren suffers for years now, but they are doing great at the moment,” said Brawn.

‘Honda win in Austria on Sunday, might have given them pause for thought’

‘But McLaren can only be pleased about being 20 points ahead of Renault, their own engine supplier’ official team’

‘McLaren team can be very pleased with its drivers, Lando is one of the most impressive rookie in the field, with four points finishes’.

‘Sainz has proven his worth last weekend, maybe it was his best race so far, he started from the back and finished eighth, impressive’ added Brawn.
