"I'm ready to lead this team," says Sainz as McLaren unveil new car

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MCLAREN FORMULA ONE DRIVER, CARLOS SAINZ, SAYING: "You can call it main driver.

I just call myself driver with a bit more experience in Formula One.

I'm 24 years old.

I'm still young, I'm still learning in Formula One but I'm definitely ready to lead this team with my experience with the things that I've learnt in the past in Formula One.

I think I'm coming from a very two solid midfield teams and I think that is going to help the team.

I have new directions, new ideas, we've discussed them and now we're working together flat out." 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MCLAREN FORMULA ONE DRIVER, LANDO NORRIS, SAYING: "It's been very good so far.

The team have really brought me up to speed, really got me into knowing everything I need to be knowing for Formula One - both on-track off-track.

I feel much more ready than I did at the end of last year.

So, I'm looking forward to it, you know, I'm looking forward to getting out in the car next week for the first time and seeing what she can do so it's an exciting moment and something I've obviously looked forward to for a long time." STORY: Spanish driver Carlos Sainz said on Thursday (February 14) he was ready to lead McLaren into the new Formula One season.

At just 24 years of age, Sainz told Reuters he is his own man and wasn't attempting to fill the shoes of his compatriot and two-times world champion Fernando Alonso who left McLaren in November, retiring from Formula One.

Sainz was speaking at the launch of McLaren's 2019 car the MCL34 along with rookie driver Lando Norris.

The blue and papaya orange MCL34 car was unveiled by 34 team employees at the former champions' Woking headquarters.

Norris, 19, was McLaren's reserve driver last year and Sainz says the Briton's knowledge of the car has helped him settle into his new surroundings.

The pair, replacing Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne, are McLaren's first all-new driver line-up in 12 years and former reserve Norris, 19, is the Renault-powered team's youngest ever driver.

McLaren, the once-dominant team of champions like Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost, have not won a race since 2012 or a championship since Lewis Hamilton's first in 2008.

They finished sixth overall last year, an improvement on three years with Honda in which they plumbed the depths of disappointment.

The overall position was flattered, however, by Force India being stripped of all their points and being replaced by Racing Point, and McLaren still have a long way to go to catch the sport's top manufacturer teams. (Production: Tim Hart and Gerhard Mey)
