Lando Norris placed fifth in the Australian Grand Prix, a long way behind the Mercedes cars in front of him. The McLaren racer, on the other hand, is pleased with the results achieved by the Woking-based team.
Lando Norris believes McLaren were stronger than they appeared in the Australian Grand Prix, when he finished fifth and colleague Daniel Ricciardo sixth, respectively.
Norris expected that the squad would experience a tussle with the Mercedes cars in the race ahead of time. This combat, nevertheless, did not take place.
By the finale of the Grand Prix, George Russell and Lewis Hamilton were in P3 and P4, with Hamilton approximately 25 seconds ahead of Norris on circuit.
Norris: It was a “shame” to lose positions at the beginning
Norris was upset that the Mercedes combination were able to go ahead of him and Ricciardo early in the race, but concedes that the Silver Arrows appeared to be faster than them for the entire 58 circuits of Albert Park.
“I guess [it was] a bit of a shame,” Norris explained.
“We lost both positions at the start just because we had a bit too much wheel spin, so we just didn’t get that quite right, but that happens sometimes.
“But even after [that], I think their pace was much stronger than ours anyway, so whether or not we were ahead after the first few corners and first few laps, I think they had a much stronger race car than we did today.”
