Lando Norris stumbled across what turned out to be a fascinating find for him in the Barcelona paddock. The McLaren driver found compatriot George Russell's Mercedes access card and joked that he would sell it on his Instagram. Buyers 'must be shirtless to match original owner's identity', however! Russell then responded by calling Norris a 'professional pickpocket'. Both drivers are always up for a laugh when they are not fiercely battling on track. They shared the podium in Canada after finishing in second and third place respectively.
