McLaren surely has all the buzz with them entering the upcoming 2021 season. From a new driver to their former Engine Partner, the Woking-based outfit seems to be all set to improve upon their upward trajectory. 

Before the Mclaren team went to test their new car, MCL35M that they would put on the grid for the upcoming season of F1. Norris also said that he wouldn’t know which areas he would focus on when his teammate can’t help him. 

The Woking-based team will use a Mercedes power unit for the upcoming season. The team had finished 3rd in the constructor’s championship in the previous season, with a Mercedes engine powering they would surely fight for the title. 

Will Lando Norris be able to outrace the experienced Daniel Ricciardo in 2021? 

The 21-year-old, Lando Norris said as per MotorSport. “I don’t know, this will be our first drive this week, and my opinion on this will begin to form, I aim to observe Daniel well and learn from him and his feedback. But I have already caught something from him in the simulator, especially about where and how he can push me.” 

He added, “I don’t know, I can’t give an answer until the first tests of the first race weekend because everything becomes reality there and people show their true potential.” 

Norris concluded, “I do not have a complete answer yet, but I am sure that it will push me in every field, and I hope I will push him. This is my goal.” (translated via Google.) 

Having said that, with the season within touching distance, it remains to be seen how the new pairing of Team McLaren perform. With Ricciardo and Norris in the drivers’ seat, lets hope that McLaren could continue to amaze the F1 fans.
