Bad start ends Norris’s fine run of form
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.”
