Norris: F3 test to catch up on non-UK rivals

Lando Norris tested a Formula 3 car in order to 'get back used to driving' in preparation for the start of the Formula 1 season next month.

The McLaren driver tested a Carlin F3 car yesterday, the first on-track action he has had since pre-season testing in Barcelona in February.

Prior to his F3 test, Norris told the F1 Nation Podcast that he is due to return to the McLaren Technology Centre for the first time since lockdown began 'next week'.

"I've got an F3 test coming up," said Norris. "I am doing some karting again next week, just something to get my body going again and back into the driving manner of some sorts."

The test, Norris says, is needed in order to catch up to drivers based outside the UK, who have been able to get some mileage under their belts.

He added: "I already know of some drivers which are doing it as well.

"I'm not saying that's unfair we're just a little bit later to the party, I still get to go and drive an F3 car, which is still good. It's just getting the body back into that physical feeling of the G-Force and everything like that, whatever to get that muscle memory back and working as it should do.

"Even Karting, there's all the bumps and physically it's bruising but also a bit of a shock to the system to get back into doing that as well. Driving anything that you can push and go flat out is going to be a good feeling doing so."
