Norris commits long-term future to McLaren with new deal

McLaren and Lando Norris have agreed to further extend their relationship through the 2025 F1 season.

Lando Norris will remain with McLaren until at least the end of 2025, having signed a fresh deal prior to the new season getting underway. McLaren announced at last year's Monaco Grand Prix that they had exercised their option to extend Norris' contract for multiple years, though the specific terms of the arrangement were not shared by the team. Now, in what has been described as "a sign of mutual confidence", McLaren and Norris have agreed terms on a new four-year deal, starting in 2022. Norris joined McLaren in 2017 after impressing during a test session and held the team's reserve driver role through 2018, before being promoted to a race seat for 2019.

Norris aiming for wins and titles with McLaren

Off the back of his most successful season in the sport - having finished sixth in the 2021 standings with four podiums and 160 points to his name - Norris says he is delighted to have signed a new contract. "Teams are about people, and I love the people and feel at home at McLaren," said the 22-year-old Briton. "I have grown up in this team and I'm part of this journey we're all on." Moving forward, Norris is determined to take the next step and fight at the very front of the field. "Last season was another great step, both in my career and the team's performance, and I see and feel all the work, investment, and commitment for the team to be in a position to challenge for wins and titles in the future," he added. "This all gives me huge confidence looking forward, so it was a natural decision to extend our relationship for the next few years."
