Lando Norris aiming to upstage Lewis Hamilton in British GP battle

The McLaren driver is enjoying the best season of his career heading into Silverstone and expects to revel in the atmosphere as the race hosts a full capacity crowd, the largest UK sporting event since the pandemic began. Norris, in only his third season in Formula One, has stepped up to another level with a resurgent McLaren this season. Heading into his home grand prix, Norris was confident he could once more race the best. Hamilton is in a tight battle with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen for the title, trailing the Dutchman by 32 points, but he may expect a stiff challenge from Norris at Silverstone as well. “I feel like if I am in that position next time I know I am able to do it,” he said of racing Hamilton. Norris also acknowledged that his first genuine battle with Hamilton was a special experience. “It was the first time I was really racing against Lewis for more than one corner like in the past,” he said.
