Lando Norris

Fans attending the Goodwood Festival of Speed will not see McLaren's Lando Norris after Saturday at the event was cancelled.

The decision to close the gates for the day came with the threat of thunderstorms and high winds forecast across Saturday.

The event, celebrating its 30th anniversary, had taken a lashing of rain on Friday and the decision in the evening to cancel Saturday's running ensured people wouldn't set off for the venue in vain.

British Grand Prix runner-up Norris was only scheduled to make an appearance on Saturday, with teammate Oscar Piastri taking over duties on Sunday's final day.

Former F1 World Champions Mika Hakkinen and Sebastian Vettel were also scheduled to run up the Goodwood hill climb, though they will return on Sunday.

German Vettel's appearance is highly anticipated considering his lack of track action since his retirement at the end of last season. He will take to the hill in a sustainably-fuelled McLaren MP4/8 and the Williams FW14B - originally driven by Ayrton Senna and Nigel Mansell.

Fans were also set to catch a first glimpse of Mick Schumacher behind the wheel of the Mercedes W02, sporting father Michael's crash helmet design.

But Schumacher will also return on Sunday.
