“I tried to let the guy go and he crashed into me, I don’t know what he was doing, bit careless to be honest," Norris said to Sky Sports after the race. "I just expected a little bit more in terms of pace today. But we didn’t have it, so a little bit of a shame.
"It wasn’t like they were much quicker, a tenth a lap, two-tenths a lap and that was enough for them to stay ahead. I think we could have done a lot more today, we lost out a little bit in the pit stop, so could have been ahead of George possibly.
"But that wouldn’t have really changed too much. We did what we needed to do as a team, that was the most important thing."
