Lando Norris may have missed out on a top ten finish in the Macau Grand Prix on Sunday, but he showed just what kind of driver he is and why so many people have such high hopes for the Briton’s future.

The Carlin driver started twenty-sixth on the grid following a first lap crash during the Qualifying race but made up fifteen positions during the race, and the 2016 Formula Renault 2.0 NEC and Eurocup champion admitted he enjoyed his race around the street circuit.

“During the first few laps I didn’t make up too many places, but once I got into a bit of a rhythm, I started to pick them off,” said Norris.  “I think the main thing for me is that I really enjoyed it. 

“Up until my accident yesterday I was doing ok; its unfortunate, because I think today could have been quite good.”

Norris admitted it was good for him to have the experience of Antonio Felix da Costa, who took victory on Sunday for his second Macau Grand Prix triumph, in the team for the weekend, and believes what he has learned will bode well for him heading into 2017.

“It’s been great to have Antonio in the team as I’ve learnt a lot from him,” said Norris. “I’ve worked really hard, I’ve enjoyed it and have a lot to take with me into next year.”
