The association of the young and promising Lando Norris with the experienced Daniel Ricciardo makes the managers of the McLaren team salivate. And it’s not Zak Brown, the executive director, who will say the opposite.
A few weeks before the start of the 2021 season of Formula 1, each team preaches for its parish and praises the qualities of its pilot duo. On the home side Mclaren, the big heads of the team are no exception to the rule, they who have made some changes during the offseason. Carlos Sainz having joined Ferrari, a place has been released and it is Daniel Ricciardo which happened, to the delight of the leaders ofMcLaren. The very experienced Australian pilot (31 years old) will pair up with Lando Norris,young British pilot 10 years his senior. A clever mix of experience and youth that has something to ignite Zak Brown, the executive director of Mclaren.

Lando norris having recently expressed his eagerness to grow and learn alongside Daniel Ricciardo, it’s the turn of Zak Brown to praise the duo of pilots ofMclarenin comments reported by F1i.fr :“We are sincerely happy to see Daniel joining us,” said the boss of the McLaren team. He is obviously a confirmed driver who knows how to win races as he has shown very well in the past. This is someone we had already tried to have in our car a few years ago. At the same time, Lando continued to mature. He had a great second season in F1 last year and I think the combination of our two drivers is great and I can’t wait to see them both working together. I’m sure they’ll pull the team to the top. I don’t think there is a duo of drivers who will be more exciting than ours this season, both on and off the track. I am convinced that we have a very solid pair of drivers, perhaps the strongest on the whole field! “
