McLaren should make a step forward in this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix, because its Formula 1 car will suit the Montreal circuit better than recent venues, according to Eric Boullier.
The Woking-based team utilised an upgrade package to end a run of three straight races without points by scoring a double top-10 finish in Monaco last time out.
The team's racing director Boullier reckons Montreal's long straights and lack of high-speed turns will help Jenson Button and Kevin Magnussen be even more competitive in Canada.
"We have been bringing upgrades regularly since the beginning of the season, but clearly we had a strong push since Barcelona," Boullier said.
"In Monaco we had a lot of mechanical upgrades on the car, and the track layout of Canada is high-speed with a lot of straight lines, but with no real high-speed corners, a lot of chicanes and low-speed corners, so it should suit our car and we should be in better shape than we were in Monaco."
