Lando Norris Issues Apology After Lewis Hamilton, Stroll Remarks

The Brit downplayed Lewis Hamilton’s achievements and used several expletives against Lance Stroll during the Portuguese GP.

McLaren driver Lando Norris has issued a public apology on social media after downplaying Lewis Hamilton’s achievements and saying Lance Stroll “doesn’t learn from anything.”

Norris collided with Stroll during the Portuguese Grand Prix and subsequently used a number of expletives against the Canadian when he got on the radio to report damage on his car to his race engineer.

And, after the Portuguese GP on Sunday, when asked for his thoughts on Lewis Hamilton breaking Michael Schumacher’s grand prix win record, Norris replied:

“I’m just happy for him, nothing more. It doesn’t mean anything to me, really. He’s in a car which should win every race, basically.

“He has to beat one or two other drivers, that’s it. Fair play to him, he’s still doing the job he has to do.”

The apology Lando Norris posted on social media on Tuesday didn’t directly mention either driver.

“I owe an apology. I’ve been stupid and careless with some things I’ve said lately in media and interviews, and haven’t shown the respect I should have to certain people,” Norris posted on Twitter.

“I’m not that kind of person, so know I should apologise to them but also everyone reading/listening. Sorry,” he added.
