Lando Norris favorites Ferrari in Canadian F1GP

F1 News: Last year, McLaren failed to score points in Canada. This year the odds are better, as Lando Norris knows. But the Miami winner is confident: Ferrari is his favorite.

In 2023, Lando Norris had to settle for thirteenth place in Montreal, while his teammate Oscar Piastri also failed to score points in eleventh place. This year, the two McLaren teammates have the best cards in the championship points race.

Since Norris’ maiden victory at the Miami GP, things have gone very well for the traditional Woking team, with the McLaren driver finishing second on the podium at Imola and Monaco. The drivers were very happy that McLaren could fight for victory again.

But the idea of ​​winning is not the main objective, as Norris emphasized: “We were very competitive last weekend and we are approaching the race with optimism. »

“Knowing that we have a chance if everyone does a good job and we can get the most out of the car is certainly exciting. But we didn’t start the weekend with that in mind. »

“We’re just trying to do our best,” enthused the 24-year-old from Bristol. The British driver believes that the competition from Maranello will be the favorite. “Ferrari is the favorite here.”

At the same time, he did not dare predict a winner in Montreal. He said: “It’s impossible to say, because everything is very close between Red Bull Racing, Ferrari and us.”

And Norris added: “We all performed well and there were good drivers in all six cars. But previous races have shown that a tenth can occupy two, three or four positions. That’s why I don’t know who will ultimately be in front on this track.”
