Strong Friday pace of Ferrari is not much of a surprise for McLaren’s Lando Norris.
Imola GP’s Friday practices have been very good for Scuderia Ferrari – P4 and P6 in FP1 and and P4 and P5 in FP2. However, Lando Norris anticipated such performance from the Prancing Horses.
“In Bahrain they were definitely quicker than us in the majority of corners – not all of them – but here they look very quick. I don’t think it’s something we didn’t expect. Maybe they’re a bit quicker than we expected, but we knew some races they’d be ahead and some races we’d be ahead,” Norris told Sky Sports F1 on Friday.
“It’s Ferrari, if there’s one team at the moment that’s going to make a big improvement somewhere it’s them,” he added.
“So it’s not a surprise. Maybe that little bit faster than we anticipated, but not a shock,” the young Briton said in the conclusion.
