Norris piles pressure on F1 rivals with MASSIVE claim

Lando Norris believes that McLaren can win the F1 world championship, but that 2024 may come a year too early.

Norris stormed to McLaren's first win since 2021 in Miami, with neither Max Verstappen or Sergio Perez able to match the Brit's pace in his papaya car.

Oscar Piastri also showed strong pace in the other McLaren, keeping in touch with Verstappen from P2 early on before damage from a scrap with Carlos Sainz put him out of the points.

The triumph moved Norris up to fourth in the standings, trailing Verstappen by 53 points. McLaren sit in a comfortable third in the constructors' championship, though are some way off Red Bull and Ferrari.

Norris '100%' sure on title challenges

Norris' confidence has been fuelled by his win in Miami, and the overall pace of both McLaren cars.

Whilst 2024 may come to early to mount a title bid for himself or team, the Brit told Sky Sports News that he believes 2025 could be their year.

“Next year? Oh, 100% [McLaren can challenge]! I’m saying that still with my feet on the ground," he said.
