McLaren have confirmed that Lando Norris will remain with the team for 2022 and beyond, following the signing of a new contract agreement.
Another long-term deal between a team and a young driver is now in place, with Norris set to remain at McLaren for the 'multi-year' deal. This usually refers to a three year agreement, but hasn't been confirmed or specified by McLaren.
Having stepped up to Formula 1 with McLaren as a rookie in 2019, Norris' growing maturity and prowess as a racing driver has made him one of the stars of the opening races of 2021.
“I’m really pleased to have extended my relationship with McLaren from 2022," Norris said.
"Having been with the team for almost five years, I feel very much part of the family here and I couldn’t imagine starting the next phase of my career anywhere else. McLaren has been a huge support since my days in junior series and I’ve really enjoyed learning and developing as a driver since.
“My commitment to McLaren is clear: my goal is to win races and become Formula 1 World Champion and I want to do that with this team. Since joining in 2017 our progression has been consistent and we have clear ambitions together for the future.
“I want to say thank you to Zak and Andreas for the belief they’ve shown in me since the beginning, and to the whole team for giving me such a strong environment to continue my career in. We’ve already had some incredible moments together which I’ll never forget – two podiums and securing P3 in the championship – and together with Daniel and the rest of the team I’m looking forward to pushing for even more success in the years to come.”
