With Bahrain 2023 F1 pre-season testing waving on Formula 1 calendar less than just three weeks away, McLaren F1 team boss Zak Brown had recently unenveloped in an interview that gifted drivers like of Lando Norris, could turn the tide for his organization. In point of fact, latest remarks from Brown came forth just days after Mclaren boss Brown had told that the F1 team would have all weapons at their arsenal for a title fight, while McLaren would highly likely to be a title contender by 2025.
Lando Norris is a “franchise” driver, says Brown
Meanwhile, speaking in an interview with a press agency, claiming the drivers like of Lando Norris would spearhead his team towards the front row, Brown said, “Lando's a franchise driver.
Lando's one of those guys if we put everyone in a dirt buggy and we put all the F1 drivers in a race, he'd be at the front because he's got that kind of natural talent. He's a total star. And he's pushing us”. Besides, adding that Norris is more gifted than Mercedes’ Russell who had finished at fourth last year, Brown added, “He wants to be winning races, I'm sure he knows he can beat George and he has beaten George before...
and he goes out and wins. He's going to be anxious people he's raced with don't get too many more wins before he starts getting his. Unbelievably fast. He pulls it out in qualifying all the time. He can put a lap together. He rarely makes mistakes -- when he does they're very small.
It's, he missed the apex, he locked a brake, but you don't see him sticking it in the fence. His race craft is really strong now. If I look at year one, he was a little too polite on track at times. Now he's someone you can race hard with and he'll race you hard, he's clean but he's hard, he gets his elbows out.
He can manage tyres very well. I think he is as good as anyone on the grid”. Norris will partner up with the 2021 F2 champion Oscar Pisatri this season.
