Last time out in China, Norris achieved pole position for the first Sprint race of the season, but fell down to sixth after running wide on the first corner battling for the lead with Lewis Hamilton.

In the race, the Brit brought his McLaren home in second place behind Max Verstappen to register his second podium of the season.

Norris sustains nose injury in Amsterdam

With there being a weekend off between the race in Shanghai and the upcoming round in Miami, Norris was seen in the Netherlands celebrating King’s Day – the country’s national holiday for the birthday of their monarch, King Willem-Alexander.

Norris can somewhat speak the Dutch language through his Flemish Mother and he was seen partying on a boat in Amsterdam alongside celebrity friend and DJ, Martin Garrix.

However, the McLaren driver did not come away from party unscathed as pictures emerged on social media of Norris, who looked to have injured his nose in the festivities.

The severity of the injury is not yet known, but the Brit was seen with a partially bloodied face and in bandages.

In the event that Norris is ruled out for the race in Miami, McLaren could turn to either of their reserve drivers Ryo Hirakawa and Pato O’Ward to stand in.
