Norris not number one McLaren driver says Seidl

McLaren boss Andreas Seidl has denied that a long and lucrative new contract means Lando Norris has leapt into ‘number 1 driver’ status. Until then, multiple race winner and former Max Verstappen teammate Daniel Ricciardo was the highest paid McLaren driver. “If you want to know if McLaren will have a number 1 driver, my answer is no,” said Seidl when asked how Norris’ new deal changes the situation in the team. The German said 2021 in particular, but also earlier, proved that Briton Norris is now a driver who can secure pole positions and fight for wins. “Naturally, we wanted to keep such a driver at McLaren for as long as possible,” Seidl added.
