Lando Norris disappointed himself at the Emilia Romagna qualifying as his fastest lap time, which meant a possible pole position, was deleted for exceeded track limits.
“I feel disappointed and annoyed with myself,” Norris said. “It was a very good day until then. The team did an awesome job, the car really came alive in qualifying after lots of improvements on Friday. That one lap where I don’t need to make a mistake on… I screwed it all up.”
Norris expressed that at such high speeds it is very easy to misjudge track limits “by such a tiny amount,” and stressed that he’s happy with how the team performed, but not with himself.
“When you’re in Q3, and you have the chance to score your best result in qualifying, you’re pushing. When you’re going at such a high speed, misjudging it by such a tiny amount is… yeah.
“I’m happy, not with my job but with the team. We didn’t start well this weekend, but we made improvements and found how to bring the car alive. We did a better job,” he concluded.
