Lando Norris has made a few surprising comments aimed at Lewis Hamilton. The young Briton said “the only thing that Lewis hasn’t done in Formula 1” is “racing in 19th and 20th”.

After the Hungarian Grand Prix, without being asked anything about Lewis Hamilton, Lando Norris made a few surprising comments aimed at the Briton.

“Yesterday [after Qualifying], Lewis complained of how tough it was finishing outside first position,” Norris said in the post-race press conference.

“Try racing in 19th and 20th, he’s never done that in his life. So that’s the only thing that Lewis hasn’t done in Formula 1.”

Norris also added that McLaren’s car is not faster than the Mercedes.

“Mercedes were on pole here last year, and their car has been pretty good. I know Lewis complains a lot of how amazing our car is and how bad theirs is, but they don’t have a bad car.

“And they haven’t all season…”

He then talked about the start of the race, where he managed to overtake Lewis.

“Lewis stayed ahead [after the start], which was frustrating, but then I managed to stay on the outside.

“I was a bit surprised, I would have thought he’d run me a bit wider, but he didn’t. It was close, I’m sure he was still trying, but it’s very easy to lock up into Turn 2.

“And it worked out, so I think that saved our race today. If I didn’t get past Lewis there, I don’t think I would have overtaken him today because their race pace was very strong.

“Their general pace was very strong, I just think they didn’t execute a very good race, and that overtake made me get a podium,” Norris concluded.
