McLaren boss couldn't be happier: Norris is unbelievable!

McLaren's Zak Brown has praised his young charge Lando Norris ahead of his home race at Silverstone, revealing where his greatest strengths are.

McLaren boss Zak Brown has revealed where he believes Lando Norris' greatest strengths are, with the British driver heading into his and the team's home race sitting in fourth place in the Driver's Championship. Norris has been one of the star performers of the season so far, and is the only driver to have scored points in every one of the nine Grand Prix in the season. “He’s getting better and better, he’s doing a great job and he’s done a great job ever since he’s joined us,” Brown told Sky Sports News. “He drives with an immense amount of maturity and has from Day 1. “If you look at rookies - which he no longer is - they historically make a lot of mistakes, have a lot of crashes. But he’s driven with a maturity from Day 1 and been very quick from Day 1, and now he’s developing in areas which we asked him to. “What I’m seeing is his confidence going from strength to strength, his pace is unbelievable and his racecraft is getting stronger and stronger, it is excellent. I couldn’t be happier with his progress.” Having scored his third podium of the season last time out in Austria, Norris is downplaying the chances of repeating the feat at the fast and sweeping Silverstone. “Being on the podium for the third time this season was a great feeling. It was a well-deserved result for all the hard work the entire team has put in so far this year and during an intense triple-header," he said. "Hopefully, we can carry this energy into mine and the team’s home Grand Prix this weekend, although we need to be realistic in what we can achieve as Silverstone is a very different track. That being said, we’ll still be trying our hardest to score as many points as possible."
