Lando Norris claims he was a bit daunted when he saw the huge scale of the operation at McLaren, and although he felt a large amount of initial pressure, he is now beginning to handle it.
The 19-year-old is a former Formula 3 champion and also competed in Formula 2 before being given a Formula 1 seat with McLaren for the 2019 campaign. Alongside new team-mate Carlos Sainz, he has been impressive in his maiden season as the team establish themselves as the best of the midfield constructors.
At such a young age, Norris was initially in awe when he visited the McLaren Technology Centre, and felt the need to perform for all the people ensuring he has the best car available.
