Lando Norris looking to bounce back after Spa disaster

Lando Norris had a nightmare conclusion to the Belgian Grand Prix but the Brit has admitted there were a still positive to takes from the weekend, highlighting their race pace as the biggest bonus.

Norris was forced to pull over in his McLaren on the finish line of the race at Spa after his engine failed on the penultimate lap of the race. At the time of the incident, Norris was on for a P5 finish but ultimately finished outside of the points, despite being classified after finishing enough of the race.

Ahead of the Italian Grand Prix, Norris insisted there were positives to take from the race last weekend and is targeting points at Monza.

“Despite the disappointment of the last race, there were a number of positives that we could take from our performance on Sunday," Norris said in the McLaren preview.

"We had stronger pace than expected during the race and I was on course for my career-best result.

"I’m aiming to take that performance into the next weekend and challenge for points in Monza.

“It’s a track I know quite well having taken part in FP1 and Formula 2 last year and I’ve also raced there a few times before in the junior formulae. It’s a very quick track, the quickest of the year, which means it’s also one of the most exciting circuits on the calendar.”
