Lando Norris believes that the fight between McLaren and Ferrari will be useful for the teams in the future.
McLaren and Ferrari had an intense battle for P3 in the Constructors’ Championship throughout the 2021 season. Ferrari came out on top, 48.5 points ahead of their opponents.
Both outfits have chances to become leaders after the introduction of the new technical regulations. Norris believes that the experience from the 2021 season can help the teams.
“I would say it [the battle] has helped quite a bit,” Norris told Motorsport.com.
“Just being with that mentality, them keeping us on our toes, keeping us pushing, trying to find these smallest bits of lap time.
“It is easy at times to get complacent and take your mind off of it, especially if you are on your own, the third-quickest car with nobody ahead or behind you.
“There are ways to fall into that trap, so I think it has been good for us. The same for them – not an easy year for them, so I think it has benefitted both of us.”
