Norris: I don’t think there was a lot more I could’ve done

On the whole, it was a positive weekend for McLaren in particular for Lando Norris who finished in P7 in Singapore. His teammate Carlos Sainz ended up in P12 despite qualifying in 7th place.

Following the weekend, Norris now sits 12th in the drivers' standings, two points behind Nico Hulkenberg and Daniil Kvyat.

“A good race in the end with decent points and I don’t think there was a lot more I could’ve done, "Norris said.

"We did the best we could at the start but I was just getting held up by everyone ahead, which is part of the race because everyone is trying to save tyres.

“There were Safety Cars, sometimes helping but other times hindering, as it allowed Hülkenberg and Gasly to come behind me on the softer tyre – a much fresher tyre as well – and I was under quite a bit of pressure towards the last few laps.

“I was having to push, which was fun because for the rest of the race we were just driving around so slowly.

It was a shame about Carlos getting hit by Hülkenberg at the beginning because I think we could both have been in the points today.

Massive thanks to the team and everyone back at the factory for their hard work.”
