Lando Norris after FP2 disappointment: It was just a messy session

Lando Norris has had a mixed day. He finished FP1 third on the timesheet but spent much of FP2 on the sidelines due to an oil leak which had to be repaired. The McLaren driver will hope that things improve tomorrow and that he can get through to Q3 and have a solid race on Sunday. 

"We had an oil leak so we had to come in and fix that which pretty much took the majority of the session away," Norris said to the Official Formula 1 Website. 

"I managed to get out for the last 15/20 minutes and did a few laps. Figured out how to drive the car a little bit but still not as many laps as I wanted obviously.

"This weekend is more race biased so it wasn't like I missed out on doing qualifying laps but it's still a quick track so you want laps to try and build confidence under breaking which the rain doesn't help! 

"It was just a messy session and I hope tomorrow will be a cleaner day."

The McLaren's have looked fast so far at the Italian Grand Prix and will hope to convert their pace into some point on Sunday.
