Mercedes and Red Bull Racing are dominating Formula 1 this season. The two teams are almost impossible for other drivers to keep up with, except Lando Norris. The Briton is having a great season so far with three podium finishes.

Norris is in third place in the world championship and regularly competes with Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton. Both drivers are fighting for the world title this season, with Norris having a feeling which driver will win it.

"I think Max will win," he states in conversation with Sky Italia. Indeed, Norris is impressed with Verstappen's car. "The Mercedes seems a bit less consistent than Red Bull. Red Bull seem a bit more balanced, while the Mercedes either go fast or struggle. I would say Max, but it will be very close."

Problems with Ricciardo

His teammate Daniel Ricciardo is struggling to cope with the McLaren for now. "It’s interesting noticing as other drivers like Carlos Sainz at Ferrari are already back on the pace, Fernando Alonso as well with Alpine. I thought Daniel too would have been back on the pace at this time, but he’s not far away," Norris said.
