Norris' contract decision looms
Now, Brown has revealed that he is well aware of Norris' contract situation and will look to address it in the near future.
“Yeah, I would say next priority”, the American told Speedcafe.
“There are a lot of priorities, and certainly with Lando we’ve got some time, but he is a driver that everybody up and down the pit lane wants.
“How much longer is Lewis going? What are Mercedes going to do? How much longer has Sergio [Perez] got?
“For sure, the three other big teams probably don’t have visibility as to their driver line-up beyond ’25, and I think with how Lando has performed, he would be top of everyone’s list.”
When asked whether a deal may be able to be made with Norris before the driver market heats up in 2024, Brown said: “Sooner…I think the market is already going.”
