Norris was parachuted into a McLaren race seat when Fernando Alonso – 18 years his senior – stepped away from the team for 2019. He showed plenty of promise paired alongside the more experienced Carlos Sainz, out-qualifying the Spaniard over their two seasons together, and scoring a brilliant maiden podium at the 2020 Austrian Grand Prix, setting the fastest lap of the race on the final lap to deny world champion Lewis Hamilton third place.
Norris' speed in the car, combined with his natural charisma and popularity in the streaming sphere, makes him the perfect young charger to partner the experienced Daniel Ricciardo at the 'new' McLaren, a team longing to return to its old winning ways.
