New participant of the youth program McLaren Lando Norris hopes that in the near future I will get a chance to debut in Formula 1 and in the footsteps of his predecessors such as Lewis Hamilton, Kevin Magnussen and Stoffel Vandorn.
In the upcoming season, the 17-year-old Briton will compete in the European F3.

“I hope that Honda will make progress in the future will supply engines to other teams. This will open up more opportunities for me, like the one sponsored by Mercedes received in Manor Pascal Wehrlein” – quoted by Norris Motorsport-Total.
17-year-old Briton shared his thoughts on the youth programs of other teams.
“Red Bull can get good support, but now their program is too many riders, – said Norris. – Of course, they have a strong program. But on the other hand, there is the risk of ending up in the same situation as Daniel. There never know what to expect.”
Norris added that he did not quite like the approach of the head of the youth program of Red Bull Helmut Marko.
“It seems like the contracts he’s signing, not racers. Any possible scenario. Of course, the best example is castling Verstappen-Kvyat – continued Lando. – Yes, perhaps it was the right decision because Max was able to win. But these things are deprived of self-confidence. You can be removed from the program at any time.
About the program Ferrari I heard not so much. But they didn’t have the best reputation from the point of view of young people drive in Formula 1. They supported many of the riders, but was unable to do that there was McLaren and Red Bull”.
