Lando Norris: When Alonso and Hamilton came to congratulate me, it was incredible


Norris was touched by congratulations on his victory from Alonso and Hamilton.

The McLaren driver said that during the race he felt confident in himself and tried to do his best to maintain first place and win the Miami Grand Prix, despite the pressure from his rivals:

Confidence emerged when the safety car entered the track. Although I felt good before that. Our pace was amazing. Better than Max and everyone else.

I was quite far away, but I understood that I might have chances. Hard work turned into success. We weren`t just lucky. Things were going well, but then a little luck helped us get ahead.

As soon as the safety car appeared on the track, I didn’t think about the fact that now Max would definitely get me. I was confident in myself. At the same time, I did not perform the restart in the best way, and in the first turn I had to defend myself. But after that everything turned out quite simply.

Norris initially planned to fly from Miami back to Europe on Sunday evening, but then rescheduled his flight to Monday to celebrate the victory. And after the race, almost all Formula 1 participants congratulated him on his victory:

That was incredible. In fact, that`s the best thing - when the people you have the utmost respect for, the people you race against, come up and congratulate you. When Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton approached me - people I have strived to emulate since childhood.

And the fact that now I’m racing against them. . . they’re probably still not happy for me to the core, but they were really glad that I won, I respect that and I’m very grateful to them, ” Norris said.
