Lando Norris

Poll: Is Norris too harsh and self-critical on himself?

The McLaren driver is one of the most open, honest and frank drivers on the grid.

It is clear that Lando Norris is one the elite drivers on the grid, and on current form, only Max Verstappen could argue to be driving better in F1. 

Unlike other drivers though, Norris is brutally honest and open about his mental health, and has been for long portions of his grand prix career, even having doubts during his 2019 rookie season.

Some of Norris's self-doubt was relieved in Miami, when at the 110th attempt, he finally won a grand prix - immediately addressing those on social media who had tagged him with derogatory monikers. 

In the aftermath of the British Grand Prix, 2009 world champion Jenson Button expressed concern for Norris's state after emotional post-race media sessions at seeing the Silverstone race slip from his grasp.

But do you think Norris is too harsh and self-critical on himself, or is it just the price worth paying to win in F1?

Let us know what you think by voting in the poll below and in the comments!
