McLaren Formula 1 star Lando Norris assured fans he’s alright and ready to race after appearing in front of the media with strapping on his leg ahead of the 2022 Singapore Grand Prix.
The McLaren man spoke to the media alongside Alex Albon who returns this weekend after missing the Italian Grand Prix with appendicitis, but Norris sounded confident the injury wouldn’t impact his race weekend when asked.
“No nothing serious, not ideal but I should be fine for driving,” Norris told members of the press.
Norris excited to race at Marina Bay circuit
Norris also said he’s looking forward to racing in Singapore for the first time since his debut season in 2019.
Norris reached Q3 and then finished the race in seventh, best of the rest behind the Ferrari, Mercedes, and Red Bull pairs.
However, the race was off the calendar for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the grid currently features three drivers yet to race at the Marina Bay Circuit.
“I’m very excited, for me one of the coolest tracks on the calendar, Norris said.
“At the same time it’s one of the most difficult to put together, and so rewarding come qualifying.”
“You’ll probably talk about Lewis’ lap a few years ago but completing a lap and putting everything together and crossing the line, it’s definitely one of the most rewarding places.
“It’s similar to Monaco in some ways to nail everything and get that feeling inside the car so I love it.
“It was a decent weekend I had back here in 2019, still in my first season so yeah I’ve missed it, it’s warm and sweaty but it’s an enjoyable place to come back to and definitely a fun racetrack.”
