An apology to Lando Norris

OPINION: After an interview with Lando Norris last week, one Autosport writer was moved to reflect on a previous column discussing the McLaren racer’s lack of fight against Max Verstappen in Formula 1 2023. It sparked a certain need, plus highlighted a key part of what makes Norris so good

Lando, I’m sorry.

On 25 October, this column ended with the line: “Norris must put glory above friendship if he’s to have the best chance of ever prevailing.” It insinuated the reason you didn’t fight Max Verstappen harder in 2023 – particularly at the United States Grand Prix you led early on, but also too in the British race where you did likewise – was down to your off-track friendship.
