The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montréal is known for its unique layout. With long straights, tight chicanes, and challenging corners, it provides an exciting spectacle for both drivers and spectators. Norris’s positive attitude toward the track reflects his love for the sport and his eagerness to tackle its complexities.

Lando Norris said, “Canada up next! I enjoy racing in Montréal, it’s a fun track with some challenging sections which make it more exciting. Our car has performed well at a few different types of circuits, but we know we might have our work cut out in Canada.”

Lando Norris’s Victory Doesn’t Taint Oscar Piastri’s Approach

Lando Norris’s recent victory at the Miami Grand Prix marked a significant milestone for McLaren, ending their victory drought since Monza 2021. However, amidst the celebrations, Norris’s teammate, Oscar Piastri, had mixed emotions.

Racing drivers are inherently competitive, and Piastri is no exception. Despite being part of the same team, he couldn’t help but feel a twinge of disappointment as Norris clinched his maiden Formula 1 victory. The odds were stacked against Piastri: Norris had significantly more experience, with 110 race starts compared to Piastri’s 28.

Piastri’s race in Miami was eventful. He made an impressive start, climbing from sixth to third and even briefly leading the race ahead of Norris. Unfortunately, a pit stop just before the safety car disrupted his momentum, and a battle with Carlos Sainz resulted in contact, further hindering his chances. Piastri ultimately finished in 13th place.

Speaking to F1TV after the race, Piastri acknowledged that McLaren deserved both cars at the front. Norris’s victory, while partly due to good fortune, showcased his pace after the restart. McLaren’s upgrade package played a crucial role, even though Piastri had only a partial version. Despite the mixed emotions, Piastri remained happy for the team’s success.
