Press Materials/McLaren/Pictured: Lando Norris
Lando Norris raced into the Austrian Grand Prix from second after scoring the best qualifying result of his career in Formula 1. The Briton showed in the first few metres that he would not give up his position easily and fought hard against Sergio Perez. Even at one point he pushed the Mexican into the gravel.
The Mexican began to demand a reaction from the stewards and eventually Norris was fined 5 seconds, and the Briton had to wait too long at the stopping point, denying him the chance to take second place in the Austrian Grand Prix. “What was he expecting there when he was driving outside the track?” – said the 21-year-old on the radio.
After the race, the McLaren driver tried to enjoy third place, but he made no secret that the stewards’ decision deprived him of a better result. – It was an exciting race, but I’m disappointed. We have to be second,” Norris said in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

– I thought the first course was tough. He tried to overtake me from the outside, which is stupid. Sam threw himself off the track. I didn’t even touch it. I’m disappointed but at the same time happy with this third place because we were on a good pace – added the Briton.
At the end of the race, the McLaren representative got close to Valtteri Bottas for just over a second. Then the engineer urged and encouraged him to fight for second place. However, Norris admitted that he had little chance of winning over Finn.
– We had a good pace, but not enough to keep up with the Mercedes in the dirty air with the other cars. I couldn’t get close to him for less than a second to be able to use the DRS. As I approached, I instantly got tired of it. However, it is positive that we can compete with Mercedes or Red Bull – Norris summed it up.
