Lando Norris has said McLaren have yet to extract the full potential of their car so far this season as the team look to continue their push to the top of the midfield this weekend in Monaco.
Norris stands fourth in the drivers' championship after a strong first four races of the 2021 season, including a podium spot at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix in which he only narrowly missed out on qualifying on the front row of the grid due to a track limits infringement.
The driver earlier today announced that he had signed a multi-year contract extension which will keep him with McLaren past 2022, he said there was still more pace to come from the team this year.
"It's still something we're figuring out. I don't think we've done a qualifying session yet where we feel like we've extracted everything," he told RacingNews365.com and other select media.
"It's obviously a quick car, it's a good car, but it's not easy to make sure that we have extracted everything. And that's also even trickier to do here in Monaco. But it's good. It just would be nice that it's a little bit easier to really unlock all the potential.
"There's always some things we learn after the race which we kind of think we 'I wish we learned this earlier on in the weekend'. We're still early on in the season, still understanding different things we obviously had some different bits on the car in Spain so we're still understanding them and making sure they're working as much as they should do.
"So it is good, but there's always more to unlock. So that's the game for us."
