Lando Norris signs multiyear extension with F1 team McLaren


PTI, May 19, 2021, 4:16 PM IST

Lando Norris signed a multi-year contract extension with McLaren on Wednesday that will keep the 21-year-old driver with the Formula One team for the immediate future.

The British driver earned the second podium finish of his career at this season’s Emilia Romagna Grand Prix and is fourth in the drivers’ standings ahead of this weekend’s Monaco GP.

McLaren’s announcement cements its driver lineup with Norris and 31-year-old Australian Daniel Ricciardo, who joined at the start of the 2021 season on a multiyear deal.

The British team’s statement didn’t specify the length of the extension, noting only that it includes “2022 and beyond.” “My commitment to McLaren is clear: my goal is to win races and become Formula 1 world champion and I want to do that with this team,” Norris said. “Since joining in 2017 our progression has been consistent and we have clear ambitions together for the future.” Norris was promoted to a full-time race seat for the 2019 season.

McLaren Racing chief executive Zak Brown said Norris is “one of the brightest talents” on the F1 grid.

“He’s been instrumental in our return of form here at McLaren,” Brown said, ”and we’re proud of the growth he’s shown since he first started with us back in 2017.”
