McLaren’s flagship Lando Norris has discarded claims of red bull fight after they both showed nondescript Barcelona and Bahrain. with Max Verstappen When he found himself in the gravel, Red Bull set off alarm bells in his garage. But Lando Norris seems to have a different opinion than we do. He feels that Red Bull have kept their trump cards open and that will show in the first race.
Lando Norris must be convinced of his personal performance during the examination. The Brit was absolutely flying at Barcelona as he set the fastest lap on day one of testing and secured P1, sending a strong message to all his rivals. This performance was supported by his teammate Daniel Ricciardo on Day 2. Lando Norris took unexpected center stage in Bahrain after Daniel Ricciardo tested positive COVID-19.
Lando Norris didn’t disappoint though, finishing P6 overall. But Lando Norris and McLaren are undeterred by the results they were able to achieve in pre-season testing. The past few years have shown that things don’t quite go as they did during testing and both Red Bull and Mercedes have come up with an upset at the start of the season.
Lando Norris and McLaren had decent pre-seasons but need to improve significantly if they are to battle with the likes of Red Bull
Lando Norris recognized the situation before him. McLaren’s prodigy said in one of his interviews: “I would go with Red Bull at the moment but Ferrari is definitely the closest after that.”
“They massively downplay themselves like they would. But consistently in every single run they’ve completed since the first lap [the first test in] Barcelona, they were basically at the top.”
“McLaren looked like they had a good chance of being among the top teams before the season, but during the days of testing the team didn’t make a lasting impression.” As reported by gpblog.
Lando Norris personally made a decent start to the season. But decent McLaren won’t be enough after investing in the 22-year-old. McLaren intends to break out of mid-table and compete in the top three and so both Lando Norris and McLaren need to improve significantly ahead of the season opener in Bahrain this weekend.
