In the first F1 race of 2020, McLaren was able to secure P3 and a podium spot with the 20 year old Lando Norris. This is Norris’ first ever F1 podium and makes him the youngest British driver to ever do it. Aside from Lando, this is an incredible day for McLaren as well. Here is what Norris had to say following the race.
“I’m really speechless. There were a few points in the race where I thought I’d really messed up. I fell back to fifth place with a few laps to go, Carlos almost passed me. But I managed to catch up and I went past Perez and I finished on the podium. It was a long race, but I kept going and I kept giving everything. A couple of really cool last laps, so I’m a little out of breath now. I’m so happy and so proud of the team, considering where we were a couple of years ago. I’m proud to be part of it,”
