Ricciardo's Monza victory "good for me" - Norris

Lando Norris believes team-mate Daniel Ricciardo's recent discovery of form will be 'good for me and the team'.

Ricciardo struggled throughout the first 11 races of the season after joining McLaren from Renault over the winter scoring 50 points compared to Norris' tally of 113.

In the three races since the summer break, Ricciardo has registered 38 points with the majority claimed in taking McLaren's first race win since 2012.

After leading the fight for Mclaren against Ferrari for much of the season, Norris is confident Ricciardo's newly discovered pace will prove beneficial.

“In terms of actual what he can do on track now compared to what he could do a few months ago, he’s definitely a lot closer for sure," said Norris.

“It’s good for me in a way, as much as you hate it because you just want to beat everyone in every circumstance, it’s only going to push me more and push the whole team more and help us as a team with the constructors’ as well.

“We’re racing against Ferrari who have two extremely good drivers so to beat them week in week out, it’s been a tough first half of the season for us when Daniel has been struggling that little bit.

"But now he has come through that I think he’s showing a bit more what Daniel can do and what everyone knows he can do.”
