After signing three years with Renault, McLaren has made clear that "this is not a short-term fix". "We know that rules will change in 2020, so it is a nonsense to talk about 2021 because we don't know what's going to happen. Now we have a new long-term relationship with a good base.

Without a doubt re should be some kind of sanctions, but it should be more clear," he called.
