Andreas Seidl hails Lando Norris’ efforts during the Russian GP.
Why it matters: The young Briton was on the verge of his maiden F1 win, but tricky weather spoiled the race.
- The McLaren team principal thinks that such an outcome is a part of the sport.
- Seidl admits that staying out on track was a mistake.
What he had to say:
- “I saw him quickly after he jumped out of the car just to say thanks for everything he has done this weekend. Of course we are disappointed and he is disappointed but that is part of the sport,” Seidl told Sky Sports.
- “Hindsight it is always easy to say what we could have done differently or he could have done differently. We didn’t get it together. It wasn’t the right thing to stay out.”
- “I think he is long enough in this sport and he knows that this is part of the game. There is a chance that we can overrule him on the pit wall but together we made the decision together. Lewis had the opportunity to do the opposite to us and stay out if we pitted.”
