Formula 1 in Abu Dhabi: Norris in the starting clamp

“Norris has soft tires and is a great starter. Maybe he’ll pack Hamilton, that would be a great cushion, ”says Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko hoping for support.

But the Brit is trembling even before the start of the all-important Grand Prix. Norris meekly: “I have the best view up there, but I don’t want to mix with the World Cup contenders.”

At least from a statistical point of view, there are some indications that he is doing this. In twelve Formula 1 races to date on the Yas Marina Circuit, the third-placed qualifier crossed the finish line in second place twice and in third place six times.

McLaren driver Lando Norris races to third place in qualifying for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

But Norris has to recover from the shock of the fast lap first. “I surprised myself here. I also don’t know where this lap time came from. I felt very comfortable in the car, but I never expected to end up right behind Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton. “

The young Briton is not at all comfortable with the perfect prospect of the World Cup duel. “Sure, I have the best place up there, but it also makes me a little nervous. The racer in me would of course prefer to take the lead with determination on Sunday, but I’m afraid of kicking off an account slip. I don’t want to decide this World Cup. “

The McLaren star himself still has a lot to gain. In the World Cup he is only four points behind Ferrari star Charles Leclerc in fifth. The Monegasse starts the race from seventh place. Driving with the handbrake on could backfire for Norris.
