Bad start ends Nor­ris’s fine run of form

Autosport (UK) - - RACE CENTRE HUNGARIAN GP -

Lando Nor­ris was left to rue a shock­ing start, which he called “prob­a­bly the worst start I ever got in my life”, as he fol­lowed his two star­ring drives in Aus­tria with a low-key 13th in Hun­gary.

The Mclaren driver was stuck in the pack from there and had rather un­done another fine qual­i­fy­ing per­for­mance, al­beit for eighth and not the glit­ter­ing grid spots Mclaren en­joyed in Aus­tria.

The team felt this was a re­flec­tion of its nat­u­ral pace in the 2020 peck­ing or­der.

“I was try­ing to go for­ward and when you try and go for­ward in the wet, you go back­wards,”nor­ris told Sky F1 of his start.“it’s as sim­ple as that. I screwed ev­ery­thing up and it’s such a dif­fi­cult track to over­take on that I couldn’t do any­thing more… so I tried com­ing back but P13 was the best I could do.”
