Why Norris must fight Verstappen harder if he’s going to break his F1 win duck

OPINION: Lando Norris brilliantly led the early stages of the United States Grand Prix at Austin, before being passed by Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton. His manner of defending was different in each battle, which demonstrated a trait he should surely revisit if he’s ever taking on Verstappen for regular Formula 1 race wins

There’s so much on the line. Points, glory, money. Futures. Whatever happens, finishing in front of your team-mate is the first goal. But how to avoid things getting sour in a battle to be the best?

Lando Norris knows quite a bit about this. His friendship with Carlos Sainz, which endures even as they race now for McLaren and Ferrari respectively, was one of the defining features on his first years racing in Formula 1. They’re not alone in being close. Of the current crop, look and George Russell and Alex Albon. Or Daniel Ricciardo and anyone.
