'The man of the midfield' is a 'mammoth task' for Ricciardo

Behind the battle between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, Lando Norris is stealing the show. The young Briton has been on a roll this year with strong performances in every race so far. The friend of Verstappen has not finished outside the top 5 once this season, which puts him in third place in the championship.

The man of the midfield

Ex-driver Timo Glock doesn't hide his admiration for Norris either. At Sky Sports Deutschland he says : "For me Lando Norris is clearly the man of the midfield. He's performing extremely well at the moment, driving good races and showing strong overtaking manoeuvres."

A gargantuan task

Daniel Ricciardo must have imagined his departure from Red Bull Racing differently. At Renault he only reached the podium once and at McLaren he's currently inferior to Norris. He [Norris] makes few mistakes, maximises the package at his disposal and is currently setting his team-mate Daniel Ricciardo a mammoth task."

Still, Glock doesn't rule out Ricciardo recovering. The season is also only three races away. "But we've already seen this when he was at Renault. He had his little problems there at the beginning, but over time he recovered very well. That's why McLaren will have to wait and see how this internal team duel develops."
