Lando Norris revealed he views AlphaTauri as a “very competitive” team that should be closer to McLaren and Ferrari in the standings.

Details:

  • Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda delivered impressive performances throughout the season, yet AlphaTauri sits 6th in the standings.
  • Unfortunately for AlphaTauri, consistency may play a part in why the team isn’t higher up in the championship standings.
  • Norris is “surprised” AlphaTauri doesn’t have a higher points tally, as it tends to find itself amongst Ferrari and McLaren.

What he had to say:

  • “There’s been many races where they’ve been a long way ahead of us, and some where they’ve been a long way behind us. They’ve had good weekends all year, they’ve been very competitive.”
  • “I’m surprised they’re not anywhere near as close as what they should be in terms of constructors’ points, because they’ve had a very competitive car all season.”
  • “They’ve always been there or thereabouts. They’re always in consideration for qualifying and races pretty much through the whole year. We’ve never canceled them out of anything.”
