Team should be very happy with their driver lineup right now.

Fast, consistent, low amount of errors and seemingly without drama at this time.



Yep totally agree, wasnt sure about Norris after a meh season in F2 but hes been impressive this year. And his comedy moment at the Silverstone driver briefing is priceless

Meh season still resulted in P2 when his focus was already on F1. So i wouldn't count it. Its not like Russell situation who had all the motivation he need to impress Mercedes.

Norris is a future star. No doubt about it. Good for him that he is with Mclaren at the moment and maybe the next two years. Imagine if he were at Redbull...

I'm pleased we have Norris - he's a good kid and obviously pilots the car well. I've been impressed with how he took a measured approach to his F1 career, not just spunking it off every other race or getting into battles he doesn't need to etc - he's got a decent head on those young shoulders. What I wanted to see was him getting quicker - which he has done, he's faster than Carlos in qually but has had some bad luck in recent races. His starts are better now, but still not as good as Sainz... all this will come with some experience I'm sure.

Pretty uninteresting note, but after the IndyCar announcement the "Formula 1" section of the McLaren website has been remaned simply "Racing".
