Lando Norris hoped to finish in the top five during the Grand Prix weekend in Canada, but in the race he failed to finish further than fifteenth. For the Brit, it was a weekend to forget, he said in his column for the British newspaper Telegraph.

"Montreal was, truth be told, a bit of a weekend from hell for us at McLaren," Norris said. "It felt a bit like everything that could have gone wrong in Montreal did go wrong. In qualifying, we had an issue with the power unit which ruled me out of Q2."

Norris therefore had the difficult task of catching up with the many drivers ahead of him in the race, but was unable to do so. As in the opening race in Bahrain, the Briton finished fifteenth, leaving him empty-handed.

Norris critical of performance

While the driver felt that there was much more in it for McLaren, he also knows that there are more racing teams who think so. "I think a points finish might just have been on the cards had everything gone perfectly in qualifying and on race day, but any number of drivers could say the same," Norris said.
