Norris signs new deal with McLaren

The McLaren driver has committed to a new four-year deal with the team which will see him stay in Woking until the end of 2025

-

Lando Norris has agreed a new four-year contract with McLaren which extends his tenure at the Woking-based team until the end of 2025.

Norris has impressed throughout his first three years as a Formula 1 driver, securing multiple podiums and coming agonisingly close to a maiden victory at the Russian GP last year before a late bout of rain scuppered his chances.

At the 2021 Monaco Grand Prix, McLaren did take up their option to extend Norris’ deal with the team, and have now revealed that the two parties have agreed a four-year contract which will see the Brit stay with the Woking-based team through 2025.  

“Teams are about people, and I love the people and feel at home at McLaren. I have grown up in this team and I’m part of this journey we’re all on,” Norris said in a statement.

“Last season was another great step, both in my career and the team’s performance, and I see and feel all the work, investment, and commitment for the team to be in a position to challenge for wins and titles in the future.

“This all gives me huge confidence looking forward, so it was a natural decision to extend our relationship for the next few years.”

The Brit is seen as one of the standout young drivers on the grid, and the 22-year old said he was excited to continue to improve with the team in the coming seasons.

Norris’ McLaren career began in 2017 when he was given the official role as test driver after impressing during an outing in Hungary. He then gained a full-time drive with the team in 2019. 

“The opportunity to extend our relationship with Lando reflects not only our commitment but our belief and confidence in his talent,” McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl said.  

“It is also a strong sign of trust and commitment from Lando in us as a team and our journey to world championship contention. Lando has shown impressive growth as a Formula 1 driver over the past four years and has been an instrumental part of the team’s momentum and performance trajectory.”
