Lando Norris admitted that he is “very happy” with his performance in the Italian Grand Prix qualifying.

Norris kept the momentum from FP2 and FP3 and ended Saturday’s qualifying at Monza in P7. He will start the Italian GP from P3 because of grid penalties applied to several drivers in front.

“I mean, very happy with today, good job by the team. My lap in the end, I was very happy with. Pretty much put it all together. Tough, it’s not easy… It’s a short track, not too many corners, but the margins are very close. Especially Q2, I think it was… it was extremely close between everyone,” the McLaren driver said.

“To find the little margins and put them all together is very tough here, but I feel like I did that and gave myself a very good opportunity. I was six-hundredths behind two Mercedes. Yeah, P3 on the grid tomorrow, good opportunity to score some points.

“We’ve definitely made some improvements from yesterday. The race pace of Fernando [Alonso] was very strong yesterday. So, similar to Zandvoort and a lot of races this year, Saturday we are strong, we can perform, and we can do a good job, but Sunday is the one where we’ve not always been able to deliver and keep up our performance from Saturday.

“We will work hard tonight to really understand it all and give ourselves the best opportunity to finish ahead and have two cars in the points.”
