Lando Norris talks about respect for Lewis Hamilton and their relationship

Lando Norris is one of the most promising drivers in F1. The Belgian-British driver is showing why he is one of the greatest talents this season. Apparently, his role model is Lewis Hamilton. In an interview with the media, Norris emphasized that he has a great relationship with the Mercedes driver.

“It's a pretty cool thing," Norris said. “I have so much respect for him and what he's been able to achieve in F1. He's part of the reason I'm an F1 driver, so it's weird thinking I'm now racing against him." Norris has been watching Hamilton's work for years and tries to learn new things in this way.

He's not someone who likes to ask a lot of questions. For now, his primary thing is to watch Hamilton and try to 'adopt' something from him. "I am not always the guy who asks a lot of questions to these kind of people to get to know what they're like and what they think,” Norris continued.

"I do it in a more subtle way and just try to understand how they think and their thought processes and kind of understand what makes them special.

Lando Norris respects his colleagues

Norris is happy to be in the company of many great drivers.

It is inevitable that over the years he will learn a lot from older drivers, and become an even better driver. "I'm not always the most proactive in going forward and picking people's brains, which is maybe a better way of doing it, but it's just not who I am.

I'm just happy to spend time with people who are at the top of whatever sport they are in, people I have a huge amount of respect for”. Lando Norris is currently a member of McLaren, and we will see if the future will bring something new for him.
