McLaren’s Lando Norris had a tumultuous weekend at the Brazilian Grand Prix, where he got into a few scrapes, including one with Charles Leclerc of Ferrari. Despite being unwell, Norris participated in both the Sprint and main race, but his aggressiveness on the track resulted in Leclerc hitting the barriers. The incident has left Leclerc questioning Norris’s behavior towards him.
“Regarding the move, obviously I know Lando is not this type of guy but for some reason, he was very aggressive,” Leclerc said in a statement quoted by Formula Rapida. “Also, in the sprint, he was the same with Carlos. I don’t really understand but it’s like this.”
Leclerc went on to describe the collision with Norris on the first lap of the race, saying, “Obviously the first lap was a shame, I think we were quite lucky, I don’t know how much damage the car had.”
Leclerc expressed his surprise at Norris’s behavior and the resulting penalty that the McLaren driver received for the incident. “At the end, I don’t expect him to let me pass, he didn’t, but today was too much, and he paid the price with the penalty I guess,” he said.
Norris has not yet commented on the incident, but fans of the sport are eagerly awaiting his response. The Brazilian Grand Prix was a thrilling event, with a lot of drama both on and off the track. Despite Leclerc’s disappointment, fans are already looking forward to the next race, which promises to be just as exciting.
