Lando Norris spoke about his relationship with his new teammate, Daniel Ricciardo, ahead of the 2021 season and how the Australian has impacted him on ways to improve.
Norris knows very well what talent the Honey Badger brings to the Woking-based team. He also brings his winning mentality to the team and knows how to get podiums. Indeed, the young Norris is keen on how to implement that into his own driving style and would closely monitor Daniel.
Lando Norris has already picked up a few things from the HoneyBadger
The 21-year-old said. “I don’t know, this will be our first drive this week, and my opinion on this will begin to form.
I aim to observe Daniel well and learn from him and his feedback. But I have already caught something from him in the simulator, especially about where and how he can push me.”
” I don’t know, I can’t give an answer until the first tests of the first race weekend because everything becomes reality there and people show their true potential.”
Norris concluded, ” I do not have a complete answer yet, but I am sure that it will push me in every field, and I hope I will push him. This is my goal.” (translated via Google Translate)
Mclaren will be the force they once were
The Woking-based team will use a Mercedes power unit for the upcoming season. Having finished third in the constructors’ championship last season, they surely have the momentum to fight for the title.
Moreover, the papaya team would have an experienced driver next season, Daniel Ricciardo, who knows how to get podiums and give McLaren a much-deserved victory in F1.
The opening racing will be on the same track in Bahrain on the 28th of March. Indeed, Lando will keep tabs on Ricciardo and hope to steal some moves from him and to beat the Australian in his craft with an equal. In Formula One your teammate is your biggest rival. What will Norris learn from Daniel to beat him?
