Damage spotted on Landi Nozza Norris’ car at Hungarian GP

McLaren Lando Norris took P4 in qualifying for 2022 Hungarian Grand Prix.

Sky Sports reporter Ted Kravitz spotted an error in an official FIA document during the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend.

When referring to Lando Norris in a document this weekend, the governing body made a typo, calling him “Landi” instead of Lando.

When speaking about Norris’ fantastic performance in qualifying that will see him start the race fourth, Kravitz called him Landi, and explained the hilarious mistake that the FIA had made.

“If you’re wondering why I’m calling him Landi Norris now, the FIA did a document where they misspelt Lando Norris and called him Landi,” he said on his Notebook show.

“I think it’s kind of cute so I’m going to call Landi, or Nozza.

“Landi Nozza Norris was excellent today and was fourth in the grid.”

Kravitz also spotted that Norris had a huge chip in the hire car he has brought along to the weekend, so he hopes the 22-year-old has some good insurance for the windscreen damage.

Norris’ excellent P4 behind the two Ferraris and ahead of the Alpines – as well as Sir Lewis Hamilton – was somewhat overshadowed by the spectacular efforts of George Russell, who took pole.

Despite his compatriot stealing the McLaren driver’s limelight, Norris will settle for P4 after a tough last couple of rounds for the Woking-based side.

“It’s a very good day for us, a little bit disappointed, George takes a bit of my glory away! But I’m very happy for him, his first pole in Formula 1, so congrats to him,” he told Sky Sports.

“But a strong day, ahead of the guys we want to be ahead of, P4 is very strong for us on a track that’s not easy to overtake on and I hope that’s the case tomorrow.

“Not far off pole onsidering where we were at the beginning of the season, I’m very happy with that.”

Carlos Sainz beat Charles Leclerc to second, while Esteban Ocon qualified fifth ahead of team-mate Fernando Alonso.

Hamilton wound up seventh having experienced a DRS failure at the end of qualifying, with Valtteri Bottas starting the race eighth, one position clear of Daniel Ricciardo.

Max Verstappen was the victim of power unit struggles on his final Q3 run as he qualified 10th, one position ahead of Sergio Perez, who was eliminated in Q2 in a disappointing day for the Mexican.
