Seidl admits risk of Norris race ban

Andreas Seidl admits there is a “fundamental risk” that McLaren could lose its most competitive driver for a race. In Austria, a penalty for the on-form Lando Norris moved the British driver dangerously close to the maximum 12 super licence penalty points. Looking forward, Seidl said the FIA should re-consider the current license points system. Seidl agrees that license points penalties are “right and important” but only when it comes to “drivers doing dangerous things”. As for who would replace Norris in the event of a ban, Seidl revealed: “We have an agreement with Mercedes regarding the reserve drivers.”. He said the “first choice” would be former McLaren driver Stoffel Vandoorne.
