While Lando Norris recently extended his contract with McLaren, locking him in beyond the 2025 season, the young driver's comments suggest the allure of a title fight and race wins might just outweigh team loyalty.

The Brit, currently holding the unenviable record for the most podiums without a win, might be eyeing a change of scenery.

The question remains: will McLaren be able to provide the competitive car Norris needs to fulfil his ambitions, or will the siren song of a championship contender prove too tempting to resist?

Norris: 'The Lewis move is cool. That's all I would say.'

Speaking to RACER, Norris acknowledged the appeal of a long and successful career with a single team.

"I thought of it," he admitted. "I would never say no to it, I think it's still a cool thing."

However, his comments regarding Hamilton's switch to Ferrari hint at a certain intrigue with the unexpected move.

But I would say, the Lewis move is cool," he continued. "That’s all I would say. And I respected that. I thought that was a cool move to do. So not saying that’s exactly what I’d like – not say anything else, I’m just saying… I’m not saying I want to go to Ferrari now, I’m just saying there are certain things that are just cool to do."
