The winter Norris focus that helped end his lengthy F1 win wait

Lando Norris had a clear task entering 2024 of cutting out the little errors that had held him back last year. He knew, after all, that McLaren was capable of delivering a winning car. Those efforts were suitably rewarded with his maiden grand prix win in Miami

“Last year I would have thought of it. But this year, I’ve been much better with just keeping my mind focused on my job. I’m doing a good job – I’m fast and I’m executing things exactly how I want to. I’ve improved on a lot of my weaknesses and all that hard work has paid off.”

It sure has: Lando Norris is now a Formula 1 race winner. Had last year’s Miami Grand Prix not been what McLaren team principal Andrea Stella described as the team’s worst event of 2023, then Norris, finding himself in a surprise winning position around the Hard Rock Stadium, might have let his mind drift dangerously back to his near-miss heartbreak of Sochi 2021.
