Norris: McLaren could challenge Red Bull at ‘some places’

Lando Norris believes that McLaren can challenge at Red Bull in qualifying at some events later this year.

“Maybe some places, Monza maybe,” Norris said when asked if McLaren can challenge Red Bull. “I don’t know, on average we’re getting a little bit closer.

“But I’m pretty sure in the race pace we’re a long way away from them. In qualifying, maybe we can have some attempts.

“They’re still the much quicker car, maybe not altogether the best car but their car is much quicker than ours in the corners.

“In the race, they have better tyre wear and their race pace is better. They’re losing in the straights and some tracks that will be highlighted than others.”
