Now, Norris has reflected on the significance of that achievement, highlighting the unique charm the British Grand Prix holds for him.
Norris: Next time I want to win
"I remember watching Lewis win here not many years ago, just thinking like how crazy it would be if I got the chance to stand here on the podium," Norris said.
"I dreamt of it actually the night before I almost got pole position, I was starting P2. We didn't have the expectation that I would be standing here [on the podium] after the race, but there was always a chance and I ended up standing here in front of all the British fans.
"They were all chanting my name and shouting my name which made it even more special. It's such a unique feeling, it's hard to describe to people what it's like to stand here and everyone coming to support you.
By far the best experience I've had in Formula 1 and one I really look forward to trying to repeat again in the future."
