Fernando Alonso says McLaren will aim to learn as much as possible from the final two races of 2015 as it bids to make substantial progress across the winter period.
Alonso endured a challenging set of races in the United States and Mexico due to further mechanical woes but the Spaniard is sure that McLaren is making progress and can move forward next season.
"The last couple of races have been frustrating on my side of the garage, as we’ve had some bad luck with reliability issues," he rued.
"It’s something we’re always working hard on and we’ll be looking especially closely at in the lead up to the Brazilian Grand Prix, so we can make sure we get the most track time possible over the course of the weekend.
"We knew Mexico would be tough, and many of Interlagos’ characteristics are similar, with its steep sections and long straights. However, the circuit is incredible to drive and always a lot of fun, so I’m looking forward to the weekend.
"We are still seeing progress in our pace and small improvements in every area race by race, so we know it’s important to keep our heads down and keep pushing towards the end of the season.
"Every race counts and the more we can learn and gather data at every track, the more information we will have at our disposal over the winter and for the development of our package."
