McLaren team boss Andreas Seidl thinks Lando Norris should race both title contenders ‘the same as always’ ahead of the title-decider Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Norris stated being nervous ahead of Sunday’s race as he will start behind Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton, both drivers who are fighting for the drivers’ championship.

Seidl believes the British driver should not change his approach and should race the same way he’s always done.

“Whenever you are in such situations, the most important thing is to just do the same as you always do,” Seidl told the media.

“Because if you try to be too cautious, for example going into the first corners, or you try to orchestrate something, you take this intuitive feeling the drivers are having, the experience they are having, and then it starts to get dangerous.

“I think that must be the approach also for Lando. In the end, the objective is clear that we want to score another good result for us as a team, and we want to get back in P5 in the drivers’ championship with Lando. In order to do that, we need a good result. And that’s how we approach it.”
