Norris: I'll have my chance of victory in the future

Lando Norris was happy to see teammate Daniel Ricciardo claim victory in the Italian Grand Prix, knowing that he should have plenty more opportunities to win a Formula 1 race in the future.

Lando Norris believes he will get his chance to win a Formula 1 race in the future after teammate Daniel Ricciardo led an unexpected 1-2 at the Italian Grand Prix. Ricciardo was already on course for victory at Monza but a collision between title rivals Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton eased the pressure off Norris, who took his fourth podium of the season. Norris was asked whether he wanted to push on and claim a maiden F1 Grand Prix win. "Of course, but I'm also here for the long-term for the team and it could have ended up like the other two ended up [Verstappen and Hamilton], so I'm just happy," said Norris. "I'll have my chance in the future, so it's all good." Ricciardo's win was McLaren's first victory since the 2012 Brazilian GP, with the team going through a turbulent period in the early stages of the turbo-hybrid era. Norris, who made his F1 debut for McLaren in 2019, says he was simply "happy" for Ricciardo and the team at Monza. "We've had a pretty awesome weekend," continued Norris. "Four years ago I joined the team, so we've been working towards this and we got a 1-2 finally, so [it is] good stuff for us. "I'm happy for Daniel with the win and myself in second, so [I am] just happy for the team."
