McLaren F1 team’s Lando Norris has overtaken Romain Grosjean for the list of drivers with the most points without winning a race in F1.
Lando Norris reached 394 points in total by winning 7th place in the Italian F1 GP. Nico Hulkenberg (521 points without winning a race) is just behind the record leader.
Last year Lando Norris came close to winning his first race at Monza and Sochi, but at Sochi sudden rain in the closing laps caused him to skid and slide down.
However, unlike Nico Hulkenberg, Lando Norris’ best result was 2nd place, with six podiums in just three and a half years. Nico Hulkenberg has a full season of 9 with a best result of 4th.
After the Italian Grand Prix, Lando Norris thought McLaren now had a faster pace than Alpine and was optimistic about the possibilities in Singapore.
“I didn’t think we were that strong this weekend, especially in the race where we were much faster than Alpine, so there were a lot of positives,” explained Lando Norris.
“I think I’ve learned a few things over the past few weeks that will help me move in the right direction.
“I really enjoyed 2019, I feel I had a good race and I performed well. I don’t know if the car is working well.
