McLaren has what is thought to be one of the best lineups on this year’s grid by many pundits.
Norris says, “I don’t want to use his 11 years of experience as an excuse to say that’s why he might have beaten me”
Although he has been beaten by his ex-teammate, Carlos Sainz, in 2019 and 2020, the young Brit is not looking like backing down from the fight.
“We’ll see. I think it will be a fierce battle between us. I’m excited for the teammate rivalry we will have, which will obviously be a good one, but he’s still a guy I can learn from”
“I’ve got targets I’m setting myself now, but nothing as a whole objective. I’m making sure I’m ready in certain areas but in saying which ones I want to improve. I think I’ll wait until the pre-season comes along.”
Will Lando Norris beat Daniel Ricciardo in 2021 or will Daniel Ricciardo continue his streak of beating his teammate, regardless of the change in teams? All remains to be seen.
