Brown: Sainz is a great leader and Norris is a great team player

McLaren have been very impressive this season so much so that they have already officially confirmed that they will stick with their drivers for next season. Zak Brown has been heaping the praise on his pair of Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz.

Both drivers are in their first season's with McLaren and after a disappointing 2018 not much was expected of the Woking-based team. However, they have performed brilliantly to cement themselves as the best of the rest this season thanks to the strong performances of Sainz and Norris.

With the action set to return next week in Belgium, Brown has been reflecting on the performances of his drivers in the opening half of the season.

"Both drivers have been exceptional. Carlos, currently seventh in the World Cup, has been a great team leader. He is extremely fast, very consistent, and just like Lando is a great team player," Brown says of Sainz and Norris in a McLaren Q and A.

Norris is in his rookie season in F1 but the American thinks he has shown great maturity, adding: "He has been very fast and has driven very maturely.

"I'm sure he will have some in the future, like all racing drivers, but the maturity and pace he has shown has been impressive."
