McLaren’s Lando Norris stated that he would like to try rallying at some point in his career.
Norris recently took part in a shoot with a rally car for his brand Quadrant. After that, the Briton became interested in rallying and revealed that he would like to drive the car.
“I want to try some rallying at some point,” he said in an interview with Motorsport.com.
“Our next collection with Quadrant clothing is a bit of an off-road vibe. So we recently went and did some stuff to record a piece for it that included rallying.
“And I just realized going there for the first time and witnessing it, how crazy those people are. It made me really, really want to have a go.
“I might start where there’s no trees, [at the] end of the year, I just want to have a go – in a safe place! With tire barriers somewhere.
“Like, car control and flicking it in and handbrake and timing and all of that stuff, it’s always good to do every now and then for like car control and to keep your wits about with more than just driving a Formula 1 car.
“It’s like karting. A lot of Formula 1 drivers like to do karting because it gets them back in the feeling of feeling things and it’s very feeling-related in karting. Same with rallying, I just want to go and try something new.”
When asked whether he would like to take part in competitive rallying, Norris said: “Maybe one day.
“I’ll have to try it first, just to see what it’s like, just because it looks awesome and yeah, there’s always things in life people want to try and do.
“That’s come across as something I would love to try at some point.”
