Norris still shaken after robbery: I'm not in perfect condition

It's been a trying few days for Lando Norris after his McLaren-issued watch was stolen while watching the Euro 2020 final at Wembley. The Briton stated that while he isn't entirely over the incident, being at Silverstone has helped him get his mind off it.

Lando Norris is happy to shift his focus towards racing after being mugged while attending the Euro 2020 final at Wembley, though he admits he isn't quite at 100 percent just yet.

The Briton had his team-issued £40,000 watch stolen while approaching his car in the official car park last Sunday night. Norris said that while he isn't in perfect shape following the incident, coming to Silverstone for the British GP has helped him get his mind off matters.

"I'm alright thanks, maybe not in perfect condition but [I'm] getting there," Norris told RacingNews365.com and other members of the media. "One of the best things really has been able to come to Silverstone and get my mind off of it and focus on a different job.

"Just excited to be here. [I'm] getting there, and I'm sure I'll be alright for tomorrow."

A capacity crowd is expected at Silverstone this weekend, and Norris is delighted to get that crowd experience back in F1.

"They've already been pretty awesome," Norris added. "I did some laps earlier in a car and they were already full on the start-finish straight, chanting and so on. So it was nice to get that feeling back.

"It's good for us, but I feel like it's also great for them to be able to get out and see some sunshine, breathe some fresh air and so on. I'm happy they're back."
