Norris: If I had my Spa crash last year it would have affected me more

The McLaren driver feels that he would have struggled to cope with the accident he suffered during qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix in the first two seasons of his F1 career.

Lando Norris believes he would have been significantly affected if he experienced a similar accident to his Belgian Grand Prix qualifying crash in his first two seasons in Formula 1.

Norris was one of the favourites for pole position in the wet conditions at Spa-Francorchamps, until he crashed at Eau Rouge in Q3 as the rain intensity increased.

"If I had this crash in year one or year two, it would have affected me a lot more than it has now," Norris told RacingNews365.com and other select members of the press.

"I still felt really bad for the whole team and really disappointed in myself. It was my fault, I was the one driving the car. Other people didn't crash.

"But it was so difficult to drive. It was wetter than [it was on] Sunday afternoon, I've just hit these bumps, there was so much water and I've crashed."

Sebastian Vettel called for a red flag before Norris crashed and was furious on the team radio when he found out the McLaren driver had suffered a high-speed accident. Norris says he was also asking for the session to be stopped prior to his flying lap.

"Seb made a great decision," said Norris. "You can tell when a guy with so much experience is shouting and having a go with everyone so much, that it wasn't red-flagged earlier.

"In my out lap, I was saying it needs to be red-flagged. Seb was saying exactly the same and the fact that it wasn't, when the conditions were worse, it was the wrong decision to go ahead.

"I've just gone through the corner and started to aquaplane on the bumps and I've lost the car. I don't feel like I tried to go for the best lap of my entire life and risk everything and go flat out through Eau Rouge on lap one.

"I just went through it normally. I downshifted a few gears, I braked and lifted off, but there was too much water for the car and that's why I crashed."
