Lando Norris is pleased to hold the unique statistic of being the only driver to score points at every race so far in the 2021 season and believes that it could help both himself and the team.
The Briton has led McLaren's charge as they fight for third place in the Constructors' Championship and also currently sits in fourth place in the Drivers' Standings with 66 points. Norris thinks that the consistency he has displayed has been key to their success.
"It's good for myself and for us as a team," Norris told RacingNews365.com and other select media. "Especially from where we are in the Constructors'.
"We're very close with Ferrari, so these kinds of things add up a lot in the end of the season. And even if it's one point or two points, [it] can still make a good difference.
"It's good. I'm doing what I can."
Norris believes that the fact that he has been wary of taking too many risks has paid off, especially at races such as the Azerbaijan Grand Prix where he finished in fifth place after starting from ninth.
"Sometimes you still want to take more risks and go for a better position, but also I feel like I've made good decisions to be on the safer side sometimes and not take too many risks," the 21-year-old explained.
"Like in Baku, I was down to 12th after lap one and things were not looking so good, but I still ended up fifth.
"So yeah, it's good, it's good for myself, it's good for us as a team and that's what we need to continue."
Norris will be looking to continue his consecutive points-scoring finishes at the upcoming French Grand Prix, which kicks off a triple-header on the 2021 calendar. Two races at Austria's Red Bull Ring will follow.
