Norris doesn't understand why Verstappen had to give up a place

The duel between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton is still a hot topic. The two are likely to have a spectacular season, but Verstappen's overtaking performance is also under the microscope of Lando Norris.

Lando Norris drove a strong race in Bahrain. The Briton started in fifth place and would eventually finish fourth. A great start of his season. The driver could not participate at the front of the field, where Hamilton and Verstappen fought for victory. According to Norris, Verstappen had an advantage there.

Norris supports Verstappen

Watching Verstappen's overtaking action, Norris notices the following. ''Max is already easily in front. He comes off track due to oversteer, but he was already in front and had already made the action. He could have taken his foot off the gas to get control, but then he would have lost the lead again,'' says Norris in his stream on Twitch.

The Briton believes that the advantage in the corner is already decisive in a duel. He also points to his own duel with Charles Leclerc. "Here Charles is in front, so he has control of the corner. I have to get off the gas here, because otherwise I'll be on the outside,'' Norris points out the difference with Verstappen's action.
