Lando Norris stated that he had had talks with other Formula 1 teams before signing a new contract with McLaren.

Last year, Norris signed a new deal with McLaren that would keep him at the Woking-based outfit until at least 2025. Later on, Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner revealed that they had had talks with the Briton ahead of his contract extension.

Norris said that he had talked not only with Red Bull but with more teams before making the decision to stay committed to McLaren.

“First of all, the talks which I said I had with Red Bull are a general thing,” he told Motorsport.com.

“Every driver is trying to talk to every team. Not always, though. 

“That’s why I signed such a long contract, so I don’t need to care about any of this for a while.  

“But whenever you’re coming to the end of a contract, you always want to have talks with as many people as you can to weigh up your options and know what might be a better path for you. 

“So, it wasn’t solely with Red Bull. It was different talks with different people. ‘What could happen now? What could maybe happen in the future?’ Everyone has those talks. 

“Everyone towards the end of every contract does that. It’s a fact.  

“But I signed a long contract because I didn’t want to think of those things.”
